THE REDLANDS SYMPHONY CONCLUDES ITS 16-17 SEASON WITH THE PASSIONATE AND BEAUTIFUL MUSIC OF BIZET, RIMSKY-KORSAKOV, AND RAVEL’S MAGNIFICENT BALERO

From the catchy tunes of Bizet’s Carmen to Ravel’s wildly popular Bolero, this concert will transport you to sunny Spain

REDLANDS, CA – Maurice RAVEL’S Bolero will be the centerpiece of the Redlands Symphony’s final concert of the 16-17 season on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at 8 PM in Memorial Chapel on the campus of the University of Redlands. Maestro Ransom Wilson will conduct. The doors open at 7 PM. Maestro Wilson will deliver a preconcert talk that starts at 7:30 PM. Tickets start at $15 and can be purchased online at www.redlandssymphony.com, by calling the box office at (909) 587-5565 or at the door on concert night.

The full program for the evening also includes the sultry sounds of Georges BIZET’S Carmen Suite No. 1 and Capriccio espagnole by Nikolai RIMSKY-KORSAKOV. RAVEL’S Rapsodie espangole and Pavane complete the evening’s program, closing with Bolero.

“I am very excited about our May concert,” Maestro Wilson explains. “Amazingly, the Redlands Symphony has never in its entire history played Ravel's Bolero on a subscription concert. Bolero is one of the most spectacular orchestral works ever conceived, so when I discovered it hadn’t been performed, I decided to build the rest of tonight's exciting program around it. The evening will be filled with bold passionate music that will lift the spirit!”
