Symphony concert features well-known tunes
The Tulare County Symphony will present music well known to the public at its Jan. 19 concert at 7:30 p.m. at the Visalia Fox Theater.
Flutist Tracy Harris will play themes from the opera â€œCarmenâ€ by Francois Borne. Concertgoers will recognize such tunes as â€œThe Song of the Toreador,â€ â€œHabaÃ±eraâ€ and â€œGypsy Dance.â€ Harris has played all over the country but makes Tulare County her home and has often played with the symphony.
Other pieces include â€œThe Sorcererâ€™s Apprentice,â€ made famous in Disneyâ€™s â€œFantasia,â€ and Ravelâ€™s â€œBolero,â€ which is built on an unchanging rhythm played on the snare drums and became well known when it was played in the movie â€œ10.â€
Tickets are $30 to $39.50 at the symphony office, 732-8600. Student prices are $10. Tickets are also available at www.gorillatix.com.
Come early at 6:45 p.m. for Music Director Bruce Kieslingâ€™s behind-the-scenes talk about the music.
