Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra Begin Season with Franz Liszt
KING FM listeners like to rock to Billy Idol. Two hundred years ago, a musical artist was born in Germany and began playing the piano at the age of 7 and by the age of 8, he was composing piano music on his own. Franz Liszt was an 'Eastern European Idol,' and he is considered by some to be the greatest piano player of all time.
The Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra opens their 2012-2013 season with music of Liszt and others on Saturday, September 29, at the Cheyenne Civic Center.
The season-opening concert will include Antonin Dvorak's 'Violin Concerto in A Minor,' featuring the symphony's Concertmaster Stacy Lesartre.
Liszt's 'Symphonic Poem Number 3, Les preludes' and his 'Hungarian Rhapsody Number 2 in D Minor' will also be included in the program.
I'll bet you've heard these Liszt pieces, they've been used many times on television and in cartoons.
Get your tickets for tomorrow's season opener at the Cheyenne Civic Center, September 29, starting at 7:30 p.m. Prices range from $13 to $37 and it's only $10 for students.
So take your 'rock hats' off for a few hours, put on your symphony hats and support the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra and their tribute to the 'Eastern European Idol.'
