MENDELSSOHN   Symphony No. 4 (Italian)         

SMETANA   The Bartered Bride: Three Dances

COPLAND   Rodeo: Four Dances



The GVYO dances through its season finale!  Mendelssohn’s beloved Italian Symphony opens with youthful energy and whirls its way to the final movement, a feisty saltarello.  Bedrich Smetana celebrates Czech culture with three lively dances from The Bartered Bride: Polka, brimming with energy; Furiant, a vigorous folk dance; and Dance of the Comedians, a scokná or “jumping dance”.  Copland’s Rodeo, originally written for the ballet, brings cowboy culture to life: Buckaroo Holiday, Corral Nocturne, Saturday Night Waltz and Hoe-Down will have you tapping your toes.  Kick up your heels with the GVYO!
