Symphoria starts the second half of this season tomorrow night with a Spark series performance “Live Design” hosted in downtown Syracuse at House of S. Jaye, a former motorcycle shop turned art studio, where audience members are invited to explore the studio and view exhibits while listening to great music. There is also a show for kids tomorrow morning at 10:30AM (at Inspiration Hall) to introduce kids to musical instruments!
Can't make those shows? The next show, on February 13th, "Wicked Divas" is a Pops series performance of showstoppers from the worlds of Broadway, opera and pop featuring guest performers singing songs by the characters of Elphaba and Glinda from the Broadway production of “Wicked.” I am attending this one and can't wait to tell you all about it!
Already busy this month? There are 11 more shows every month thru June! I am sure that the Disney & Star Wars shows will be wildly popular (I REALLY want to go to the Disney show!) along with traditional performances of Brahms, Mozart and Copland & Stravinsky.
Here are this season's remaining shows and a short description of each:
