Festival City Symphony invites Girl Scouts, family members, and friends to “Grand Passions and Tales: The Music of Italy and France,” a concert on Saturday, March 4, 2023 at 2:00pm at the beautiful Bradley Symphony Center at 212 W. Wisconsin Ave. Girl Scouts are encouraged to arrive early for the 1:30pm on-stage Meet the Musicians presentation, featuring instrument demonstrations by musicians of the orchestra. Music educator Lynn Roginske will also present her Children’s Program Notes, a pre-concert discussion of the afternoon’s music selections for kids.
Pre-concert activities and the concert are great for Girl Scouts of all ages. Participation relates to or completes steps 1, 2, and 3 of the Junior Musician badge.
Come take a musical tour of Italy and France led by Music Director Carter Simmons as Festival City Symphony performs beautiful music of the Italian masters Giuseppe Verdi and Pietro Mascagni, along with visions of four Fountains of Rome by Ottorino Respighi. The orchestra will close with French genius Georges Bizet’s lovely music to the play L’Arlesienne, which recounts a tumultuous love tale. Written just before his wonderful opera, Carmen, this music is treasured by all who hear it.
