YOUR IRIS ORCHESTRA
Walton: The Wise Virgins: Suite
Foote: Francesca da Rimini; Symphonic Prologue
Brahms: Symphony No. 2
To conclude the 2020-2021 season, we have chosen to highlight what makes us truly unique: our own Iris musicians. Beginning the final program is William Walton’s translation of six movements of Bach into a lushly English suite entitled The Wise Virgins. To follow is American composer Arthur Foote’s interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s Francesca da Rimini; Symphonic Prologue, Op. 24. Finally, what better way to conclude our 21st season than with Symphony No. 2 by Johannes Brahms. This impressive program is a reminder that the passion and artistry of the musicians of Iris is the essence of the Iris Orchestra experience.
