Prokofiev’s Cinderella with Young Artists Concerto Competition Winners

The Wilmington Symphony presents its third Masterworks concert of the 2019-2020 season, Prokofiev’s Cinderella. The concert will also feature special performances by the High School and UNCW Division winners of the Wilmington Symphony’s annual Richard R. Deas Young Artists Concerto Competition.

Prokofiev, who wrote quite well regarding his works, had this to say about his ballet: “The main thing I wanted to convey in the music of Cinderella was the poetic love of Cinderella and the Prince – the inception and flowering of the emotion, the obstacles in its way, the realization of a dream.”

Selections for this concert include:
Cinderella Op. 87  |  Sergei Prokofiev
Oh! Quand je dors  |   Franz Liszt
Violin Concerto, Op.14  |  Samuel Barber
King Stephan Overture  |  Beethoven

Tickets are $25 – $60.

The Wilmington Symphony Orchestra’s local effort is part of the national Orchestras Feeding America initiative originated when the League of American Orchestras first joined forces with Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization, in 2009. More than 215 orchestras in all 50 states participated in an unprecedented coordinated effort by collecting and donating food to their local food assistance agency or food bank within Feeding America’s network of more than 200 food banks and 60,000 agencies. Since then, 450 League member orchestras have participated in the annual effort.
