The Las Colinas Symphony Orchestra celebrates its 2017-2018 Season, “Vienna, City of Music!!”
Las Colinas Symphony continues its 2017-2018 “Vienna, City of Music!!” on December 16, 2017 at 8:00PM at the Irving Arts Center, Carpenter Hall, Irving, TX.
No other city in the world can boast a musical history as illustrious as Vienna’s. In a single afternoon, you can visit Haydn’s house, Beethoven’s apartment, and the Cathedral where Schubert sang as a boy. Or, for less than the price of a good bottle of Gruner Veltliner, you can immerse yourself in great Viennese music with a subscription to the Las Colinas Symphony Orchestra’s 2017-18 Season: “Vienna, City of Music”.
The concert will feature Richard Trey Smagur, tenor, performing Vaughan Williams’ “Hymn” from Hodie, Finzi’s “The Rapture from Dies natalis, and Tyzik’s Twelve Days of Christmas.
Richard Smagur, of Clarkesville, Georgia, was named a winner in the Metropolitan Opera National Council of Auditions earlier this year, and was seen this summer as Tsarevitch Gvidon in The Golden Cockerel at Santa Fe Opera. He has appeared professionally as Tamino in The Magic Flute with Oklahoma Mozart and covered Des Grieux in Manon at Des Moines Metro Opera. In concert, he has performed Elijah with the Tucson Desert Song Festival and as a tenor soloist with the Cincinnati boy Choir. During the summer of 2016, he was a fellow at the Steans Music Institute at Ravinia Music Festival.
