Starting a new year is all about starting over, and with the arrival of a new year brings the second half of the Mid-Texas Symphony’s 2016-2017 concerts. In December, we went out with a holiday bang, and we’re kicking off this year with a dance! Travel back to the good old times of music with orchestral sounds of Big Band favorites. The first official Mid-Texas Symphony and Concert No. 4 of the current season uplifts you into the swinging sounds of Big Band music. The Big Band Blowout is arriving!
Mid-Texas Symphony’s The Big Band Blowout is the perfect throwback to get the audience out of their seats and onto the dancefloor. The Symphony will be performing songs from classic Big Band artists such as Benny Goodman, Les Brown, Count Bassie, and Glen Miller, with vocal performances by SAVAE. Put on your dance shoes, because while these artists are performed orchestrally you’ll have the chance to learn how to swing dance - and food and drinks will be provided!
Will you swing dance with Mid-Texas Symphony? Celebrate this special genre of music on February 18th, at 6:00 pm, at the New Braunfels Civic Center.
Concert No. 5
Don’t forget, we return to the sweet sounds of classical music soon after the Big Band Blowout. Have an evening filled with Vivaldi’s Sinfonia No. 3, Mozart’s Concerto for Violin No. 5, and Haydn’s Symphony No. 104 all executed by the talented hands of Mid-Texas Symphony. Concert No. 5 is on March 26th, 4:00 pm, at the Jackson Auditorium.
