Symphony Tries to Usher in Warmer Months with Program Inspired by Spain and Greece
SPRINGFIELD, MASS., MAR. 31, 2017 — What better way to celebrate the coming of spring in New England—or at least the desire for it to come—than with a symphonic tour of the Mediterranean? On Apr. 8, the Springfield Symphony Orchestra (SSO) will treat its audience to powerful classical works inspired by the natural beauty of Spain and mythology of Greece. Featuring works by Franz Liszt and Manuel de Falla, as well as the SSO debut of pianist Washington García, Nights in the Gardens of Spain is sure to satisfy concertgoers’ springtime wanderlust — while never leaving their seats at Springfield Symphony Hall.
