KPO Gala Concert (Soldotna)

August 10, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


The Kenai Peninsula Orchestra conducted by Tammy Vollom-Matturro presents British Classics. The program includes the symphonic blockbuster, The Planets, Op. 32, a seven-movement orchestral suite by composer Gustav Holst. Each movement represents Holst’s defined astrological character of the planets in the Solar System. The mysterious score, Enigma Variations, Op. 36, by Edward Elgar is said to contain secrets and clues within it. Finally, the Overture to the Wasps will wrap up the concert. This is an incidental music piece composed by Ralph Vaughan Williams. It was written for a production of Aristophanes’ The Wasps.

$20 General / $15 KPO Crescendo Club Membership / Youth 18 & Under are Free. Tickets are available at River City Books in Soldotna, Already Read Bookstore in Kenai, The Homer Bookstore and at the door.
