College-Community Orchestra Concert Features Tchaikovsky
SIOUX FALLS, SD – The Augustana College-Community Orchestra presents an all-Tchaikovsky program, I LIKE TCHAIK! The concert will take place in the Great Hall of the Washington Pavilion on Sunday, April 18, at 3:00 p.m.
Perhaps the most popular symphonic composer of all time, Tchaikovsky’s music appeals to people of all ages and backgrounds. This is partially because his music wears his heart on his sleeve, with compelling orchestrations and haunting melodies.
The centerpiece of this concert features Augustana’s Director of Keyboard Studies, Dr. Rick Andrews, performing Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1.
The orchestra is conducted by Dr. Christopher Stanichar. In addition to the piano concerto, the concert will also feature Tchaikovsky’s Waltz from Eugene Onegin and Symphony No. 2, Little Russian.
Tickets cost $12 for adults and $8 for seniors and students. Tickets may be purchased in advance at www.augietickets.com or by calling the Augustana Box Office at 605.274.5320.
