Washington Sinfonietta Concert: A Romantic Voyage
On Saturday, June 25, the Washington Sinfonietta performs a captivating program that includes Carl Maria von Weber’s Overture to Der Freischuetz, Franz Schubert’s iconic “Unfinished” Symphony No. 8, and Richard Strauss’ Serenade in E-flat Major. Internationally renowned pianist Rachel Franklin – a favorite Sinfonietta guest artist – also joins the orchestra for Ludwig van Beethoven’s dazzling “Emperor” Concerto No. 5, along with a special encore of Claude Debussy’s wistfully romantic Clair de Lune.
The concert is dedicated as a memorial tribute to longtime Sinfonietta friend and supporter Cindy Pettigrew.
