The RPO is back on Friday, February 9. Ward Stare conducts. The evening begins with a special performance by the Rochester City Ballet dancing to Dvořák’s Slavonic Dances, Op. 46. David Halen, concertmaster of the St. Louis Symphony, performs a violin suite of beloved tunes from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty ballet suites. The orchestra performs Bartók’s Miraculous Mandarin Suite and concludes the concert with “not your average waltz,” Ravel’s La Valse.
