You can still get tickets for Saturday’s Music on the Mountain concert by Spokane Symphony at local outlets until noon Friday, and then Saturday at Chewelah Peak Learning Center, Chewelah Arts Guild announced.
“Opera Classics”– familiar music from 10 great operas—is the program. “Carmen,” “The Barber of Seville,” “Aida,” and “The Marriage of Figaro” are among the operas by famous composers Bizet, Rossini, Verdi, and Mozart that the symphony will be sampling.
[ihc-hide-content ihc_mb_type=”show” ihc_mb_who=”reg” ihc_mb_template=”-1″ ]“These are great pieces I think the audience is going to love,” said John Grumbach, host of the Sunday morning classical music program on KCHW. “People will have heard a lot of them before. For example, ‘Dance of the Hours’ was used in the Disney movie ‘Fantasia.’
“Watch the timpanist at the end of ‘Bacchanale from Sampson and Delilah; he goes crazy on the kettle drums.” Grumbach said. “Really, this is one of the best programs the Symphony has brought us.”
Tickets for the 2 p.m. concert are $25 for adults, $15 for children. You can get them at House of Music in Colville, Valley Drug Co. and Akers United Drug in Chewelah, and online at chewelahartsguild.org.
The ticket price includes beverages and food. Doors will open at 1 p.m. and handicapped parking is available. Though seating is “festival,” seats in the front rows will be reserved for those who are bringing children to the concert.
