Why You'll Love This Concert
Bask in the lush beauty of the Redlands Symphony strings with three works filled with beauty and joy.
Gorgeous melodies and catchy dance tunes blend together in Gustav Holst’s St. Paul’s Suite, leading up to the composer's stirring take on “Greensleeves,” the beloved English folk song. Next, you’ll enjoy the evocative strains of Ravel’s String Quartet, arranged for full string orchestra by our own Music Director, Ransom Wilson.
The spirit of Mozart brings our evening to a lyrical conclusion in Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, featuring one of the composer's most popular waltzes.

Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
violins, violas, cellos, basses
Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings in C Major was written with an ear towards one of his idols, a certain 18th century composer by the name of Mozart. The title and structure of the piece are taken from the serenades of the latter, though this is certainly Tchaikovsky's own particularly 19th century rendering of these older ideas. The work was completed in 1880 and premiered in St. Petersburg in 1881.Read More
Attended the concert last Saturday evening and it was an amazing performance. Dr. Wilson as always got the absolute best from the orchestra, I am so impressed with the orchestra members and how they respond to Dr. Wilson’s direction. The soloist was stunning. So glad to be there and will see you at the next concert!
