Description

Join the Lewisville Lake Symphony online for a streaming broadcast of Bravo!, featuring different sections of the orchestra – strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion – each performing as an ensemble so that musicians stay safe and maintain social distancing on the MCL Grand stage.

Among the works being performed is Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings, a familiar composition that has been heard at many sad occasions, such as the funerals of FDR, Einstein, and Bernstein, as well as after JFK’s assassination and the New York attacks of September 11. The program also features works by Dmitri Shostakovich, Richard Strauss, and Gustav Holst.
