Culver City Symphony Offers Sibelius, Grieg, Britten This Saturday

This Saturday, January 31, at 8:00 pm, the Culver City Symphony will perform works by Sibelius, Mendelssohn, Glazunov, Grieg and Britten at Veteran's Memorial Auditorium. The Glazunov concerto will be particularly unique -- a rare classical pairing of the saxophone with a string orchestra. The Culver City Symphony is conducted by Frank Fetta, and Mathew Ennis will serve as the solo saxophonist during the Glazunov piece. 

The program will include: 

Sibelius: Canzonetta, Opus 62a (1911) 

Mendelssohn: String Symphony No. 10 (1823)
Adagio - Allegro - Più Presto

Glazunov: Saxophone Concerto, Opus 109 (1934)

Grieg: Holberg Suite (1884)
1. Praeludium 2. Sarabande 3. Gavotte 4. Air 5. Rigaudon

Britten: Simple Symphony, Opus 4 (1934)
1. Boisterous Bourrée 2. Playful Pizzicato 3.Sentimental Saraband 4. Frolicsome Finale

The concert is dedicated to the memory of Virginia Bortin, the founder of the summer concerts in Burton Chace Park in Marina del Rey, where the orchestra performs each summer as the Marina del Rey Symphony.

Veterans Memorial Auditorium is located at 4117 Overland Ave.
