GLINKA Overture to Ruslan and Ludmilla
KHACHATURIAN "Sabre Dance" from Gayane

ALBINONI/GIAZOTTA (Adapted) Adagio in G Minor for Organ and Strings
DUKAS The Sorcerer's Apprentice (from Disney's "Fantasia")
You know these tunes even if you don’t know the composer well. From the “Clown Song” (Entrance of the Gladiators) to The Sorcerer’s Apprentice made famous in Disney’s “Fantasia,” enjoy an evening of one-hit orchestral wonders played live by your Kansas City Symphony. The frenetic Sabre Dance is a throwback to spinning plates on the “Ed Sullivan Show” and Mascagni’s highly emotional Intermezzo from Cavalleria rusticana (and the movie “Raging Bull”) will tug at your heartstrings. After the concert, enjoy a complimentary glass of wine or champagne with Symphony musicians in the Kauffman Center’s picturesque Brandmeyer Great Hall. Most tickets $25.
