Symphony orchestra performing Sunday

May 03, 2013

The Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Robert McConnell, concludes its 62nd-year with “Mayflowers and Romance” Sunday at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center’s Stephen Sondheim Center for Performing Arts.

Those attending should note the change of time for the performance from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Those with questions or concerns can call the ticket office at 472-2787.

The special performance, sponsored by the Fairfield Concert Association, will be a mixture of classical and pops literature and will showcase the John and Coralee Dey Barhydt organ on several Romantic and Baroque compositions.

The concert also will feature an anatomy of the orchestra section, which dissects music, exposing the inner workings of a piece of art. McConnell will lead a “Talk-Back” session for the audience with the orchestra.

The Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra will perform a repertoire of Sousa’s “Freelance March”; Brahm’s Symphony No. 4, second movement; Horner’s “Music from Apollo 13”; Saint-Saëns’ Symphony No. 3 final movement; Handel’s Organ Concerto No. 13; Badelt’s “Pirates of the Carrbbean”; Williams’ “Jurassic Park”; and de Fall’s Three Cornered Hat final dance.

Tickets range from $12 to $27. For tickets and information, call the ticket office at 472-2787 or visit the website at www.fairfieldacc.com.
