Join Maestro Schulz and Friends for an afternoon of beautiful serenades. A chamber orchestra comprising musicians from the BSO will perform Edward Elgar's Serenade for Strings and Richard Wagner's Siegfried Idyll. At the end of his life Elgar proclaimed that of all his music, his Serenade was his favorite. Lithe and gracious, this charming work for strings has become a staple of the string repertory. Siegfried Idyll was composed as a birthday gift for Wagner's wife, Cosima. As she awoke, Richard handed her the score to her "symphonic birthday greeting" and an orchestra that had been assembled on the staircase of their home began to play. This is one of the most intimate and private works by a very public and self-assured man. Other artists appearing on the program include Rachel DeShon, soprano, Amber Rose Johnson, mezzo-soprano, Alysa Trebor, flute, Dwight Beckmeyer and Tom Lee, piano, and students from the Seattle Conservatory of Music.
