Festival City Symphony will continue its 2021-2022 “Saturday Classics” season with a concert titled Mendelssohn and Mozart at 2 p.m. on Sat., Nov. 20, at the Bradley Symphony Center, 212 W. Wisconsin Avenue in Milwaukee. Admission will be free, though tickets are required, and donations are suggested and appreciated.
FCS Principal Flute, Emma Koi, will perform Mozart’s timeless first Flute Concerto (Flute Concerto no. 1 in G, K. 313). The concert will also feature Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Five Variants of “Dives and Lazarus” for strings and harp, as well as Mendelssohn’s Symphony no. 3 in A minor, “Scottish,” which FCS Music Director Carter Simmons calls “perhaps the most beautiful of Felix Mendelssohn’s symphonies.”
The Saturday Classics series aims to make classical music accessible to everyone, including single adults, couples, seniors, music students, families, and school age children in grade 2 and above. Before the concerts, families can enjoy a Children’s Program Notes presentation by FCS music educator Lynn Roginske beginning at 1:45 p.m. to help children become familiar with the music they are about to hear.
Tickets are available at festivalcitysymphony.org, or by calling the Bradley Symphony Center Box Office at (414) 291-7605. The suggested donation is $14 per adult per concert; the suggested donation for children, students, and seniors is $8 each per concert.
In accordance with the protocols of the Bradley Symphony Center, patrons will be required to show either proof of vaccination against COVID1-19 or proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the performance, accompanied by a valid ID.
