Emperor Waltzes

One of Sommerfest’s greatest delights is its annual concert brimful of music from Vienna’s “Waltz King.” With a smiling lilt and champagne bubbles in every bar of music, Strauss waltzes sing of Vienna at its grandest—and they speak volumes about Sommerfest’s enduring popularity.

We start with a fantasy-medley of “greatest hits” from Bizet’s masterpiece, the opera Carmen, then enjoy Vaughan Williams’ surprisingly lyrical Tuba Concerto. The spotlight shines throughout the program on several of this fine orchestra’s über-talented players.
