Celebrating our 30th season in 2017-18 with

“Sundays at the Symphony”

3:30 p.m. in Irving Arts Center’s Carpenter Hall


New Philharmonic Orchestra of Irving



October 22, 2017 - Time travel with music!  A symphony orchestra takes you through time to

experience dramatic places and events with...


    Wagner’s “Rienzi” Overture, about a populist hero’s downfall, set in ancient Rome...

    Borodin’s “The Steppes of Central Asia” as Asia and Europe travel together for a time...

    Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition” taking us to the elegant and mysterious salons of Russia



December 10, 2017 – Dreams for the holidays

For Faure, it was a new kind of msicopera, all about love.  For Mahler, it was a big symphony, one that is

very personal, his first symphony, “The Titan.”


   

Faure’s Suite from Pelleas and   Melisande, Op. 80

Mahler’s Symphony no. 1, “The Titan”



February 11, 2018 – An orchestra meets a dinosaur...   In this concert – for adults and kids – we present Morton Gould’s “The Jogger and the Dinosaur” – with a rapper as narrator.  And as unlikely as

it sounds, the orchestra then meets “Peter and the Wolf,” the Prokofiev masterpiece, that takes the audience through the woods to a happy ending!


   Morton Gould’s “The Jogger and the Dinosaur” with rapper narrator ...

   Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf” with narrator ...

   concerto debut performance by a young artist, winner of our annual concerto competition


April 8, 2018 – Love letters from Argentina, Mexico and Brazil

We’ll explore great music by three composers, expressing their love for their lands (Latino Connections!)


    From Argentina, Ginastera’s “Ollantay,” a symphonic poem about Quechua myths of vanished cities ...

   From Brazil, Villa-Lobos’ “Bachiana Brasileira” no’s. 2 and 5, celebrating folk melodies in Bach’s style ...

   From Mexico, Chavez’ “Sinfonia India,” his tribute to the native population using colorful percussion...

   From Mexico, Moncayo’s “Tierra de temporal,” a tribute to the land


May 20, 2018 – The magical ‘Magic Flute’!

To close our 30th season, we hope to present a 100-minute version, similar to the one performed by

the Metropolitan Opera, with all the magic of Mozart!  In this magical afternoon, the audience will hear

young singers from UTA/Arlington’s Opera Workshop with special guest soloists.  Mozart takes us

back to an enchanted forest, young lovers, a threatening Queen of the Night and an epic test of character.
