Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat

Sunday, July 28, 2019 at 4:30 pm
Reception to follow
Wisconsin Union Theater Play Circle

A special benefit Concert for the WYSO Chamber Music Program, Igor Stravinsky’s “The Soldier’s Tale” examines how war can affect us individually and as a society. Now 100 years old, this captivating folktale tells the story of a soldier, a violin, and the devil set to music. What happens when you sell your fiddle in exchange for wealth? What if the buyer happens to be the embodiment of evil: Satan? Wisconsin Public Radio’s Norman Gilliland will bring this enthralling tale to life with a performance by some of Madison’s most talented musicians:

Kyle Knox, Conductor
Naha Greenholtz, Violin
Jeff Takaki, Bass
JJ Koh, Clarinet
Brian Ellingboe, Bassoon
Matthew Onstad, Cornet
Tom Macaluso, Trombone
Joe Bernstein, Percussion

 All proceeds benefit the WYSO Chamber Music Program.
