Season finale! Principal Flutist James Blanchard plays Faure’s expressive, virtuosic Fantaisie – plus, the Allegro from Mozart’s brilliant “Paris Symphony”

Marianna Martines wrote over 200 works and performed with Mozart; her Sinfonia in C Major opens our season finale with rhythmic vitality and flowing melodies. Written more than a century later, Grieg’s Baroque-inspired Holberg Suite echoes the sparkling, delightful music of an earlier time. Principal Flutist James Blanchard is featured as soloist in Gluck’s Dance of the Blessed Spirits and Faure’s expressive, virtuosic Fantaisie. The “Dean of African-American Composers,” William Grant Still’s Tamborito and Cumbia y Congo from his Danzas de Panama were inspired by the vibrant, percussive musical influences of African slaves in Panama. The concert concludes with the Allegro from Mozart’s brilliant, thrilling “Paris Symphony.”

Filmed at the Temple for Performing Arts and broadcast on May 13, our Live from the Temple concerts feature a reduced-size orchestra spaced appropriately to ensure musician safety.
