The great composers often paint a musical picture for us, and sometimes they even try to communicate a specific color. The Las Colinas Symphony Orchestra will explore this intriguing intersection between the aural and the visual when it opens its 2018-2019 season with Symphonic Kaleidoscope at the Irving Arts Center in Carpenter Hall. With repertoire ranging from Strauss' Blue Danube Waltz to Gliere's Red Poppy Suite, and from Auber's Le domino noir to Ellington's Mood Indigo, we will share with you a panoramic palette of orchestral sound.

Pianist, Simone Sala, will be returning to open the season to perform Rhapsody in Blue. This season will also feature Kiarra Saito Beckman, violinist, performing John Corigliano – Chaconne from The Red Violin, along with former London Symphony Orchestra Principal Violist, Paul Silverthorne, returning to perform the Walton Viola Concerto.

The concert will feature pianist, Simone Sala performing Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. Mr. Sala is the winner of over a dozen piano competitions in his native Italy, including the prestigious “Premio Napoli” International Piano Competition in Naples in 1999. He is also a winner of the Texas Young Artists Competition (2008) and the Hubbard Music Competition in Roundrock, Texas (2009).

In addition, the LCSO will be performing Copland’s Suite from The Red Pony, Moss’ Salute to Ol’ Blue Eyes, and Griffes’ The White Peacock.

Single tickets from $16.50. Season tickets as low as $60.
