In celebration of fall, the Merced Symphony Association and Arts UC Merced Presents are excited to showcase the string orchestra’s multitude of coloristic possibilities. Serenading Strings, the second concert of the MSA’s 60th Anniversary Season, takes place Friday, Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Art Kamangar Center at the Merced Theatre.
The concert opens with the Norwegian fiddling of the Grieg Holberg Suite and continues to the sweet lyricism of Dvorak’s "Serenade." The concert ends with the passionate and rich "Serenade for Strings" by Tchaikovsky. The composer himself stated that he composed the serenade “from inner conviction,” and that “it is a heartfelt piece and so, I dare to think, is not lacking in real qualities.”
This year the MSA is proud to announce tiered ticketing in an effort to make our concerts accessible to even more live-music lovers. Tickets for students/children are $15; adult tickets are available for $25, $35, or $45. Tickets can be purchased at the Merced Theatre Box Office at 301 W. Main St.
