The Lubbock Symphony Orchestra’s Upcoming 2nd Masterworks Concert
Wednesday on KFYO Mornings with Dave King and Matt Martin, the Music Composer of the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra David Cho joined Dave and Matt to talk about the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra's upcoming concerts and events.
Coming up this Friday and Saturday, October 26th and 27th, at 7:30 p.m. at the Civic Center, the Orchestra will be having their 2nd Masterworks show featuring the music of composers such as Brahms, Dvořák, and Schumann, which Cho described as the premier composers of the romantic era. "The Schumann cello concerto is not very virtuosic...it's more meditative, it's more introverted, and it's more reminiscing. So we thought these music would be so appropriate for the fall and autumn. It would be a perfect date night," Cho said. Before the concert they will have their pre-concert dinner, Soundbites at 6 p.m. where you can have a gourmet dinner and hear about the composers and the show beforehand.
After that, on October 30th, the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra will be having a Halloween themed family friendly concert at the Civic Center. At 5:30 they will have all sorts of family activities including face painting, showing off costumes, learning to make costumes, learning how to conduct, a petting zoo, and more. Then at 7 p.m. they will have the actual concert, followed directly after by Trunk-or-Treat.
Tickets can be purchased by going to lubbocksymphony.org, by calling 762-1688, or by visiting their office at 601 Ave K.
