Mark Shanahan
conductor
(Playing Celeste)

Lieutenant Kijé | Sergei Prokofiev
Masquerade Suite | Aram Khachaturian
Symphonie Fantastique | Hector Berlioz

"Join us for an evening of musical storytelling with snow, sleigh bells and party frocks. Prokofiev’s suite tells the life story of Kijé from his birth to romance, wedding, snowy sleigh ride and finally his burial. We then head to Armenia for a tale of a masked ball, a missing bracelet and suspicions of infidelity. Symphonie fantastique follows a young musician’s lovesick afflictions as he dreams of his love, finds himself at a festive ball and enjoys a moment of rural calm before succumbing to grotesque and diabolical visions." - Forest Philharmonic
