The Brigham Young University Performing Arts Series welcomes the Utah Symphony with guest percussionist Colin Currie to the de Jong Concert Hall on Thursday, Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $17 for the general public, $14 for alumni and senior citizens and $10 for students and are available for purchase through the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 422-4322, or at byuarts.com/tickets.
The program features “Ride of the Valkyries” by Wagner and Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Symphony. The highlight of the performance will feature the world’s busiest percussion soloist, Colin Currie, as he becomes “Alberich Saved” in the rollicking, Wagner-inspired concerto by Chris Rouse.
Currie has established a unique reputation for his charismatic and virtuosic performances of works by today’s leading composers, and has appeared with many of the world’s most important orchestras.
