"On the Beautiful Blue Danube" - Classics Series, Concert III

  • Saturday, March 11, 2017
  • 7:30 PM
  • Julie Rogers Theatre
Our traditional choral concert is always a grand event. This season we begin with Johann Strauss’s classic waltz “On the Beautiful Blue Danube.” The captivating rhythms of this memorable waltz display the magic of Strauss’s charm in composing music to delight its listeners.  The well-known Johannes Brahms’ “Variations on a theme by Haydn, op. 56a” was a tribute to an earlier master he revered.  In form as well as thematic material these variations make us hear Haydn’s chorale in entirely new ways. Guest

Conductor Dr. James Han will lead the SOST Chorus in Robert Schumann’s Requiem, opus 148. Schumann, a German composer, was an influential music critic widely regarded as one of the greatest composers of the Romantic era.

Our choral concert is always a fantastic performance with so many voices and instruments working together in glorious harmony!

Guest Conductor: Dr. James Han with SOST Chorus
