Symphony goes 'wild' in a safari style show

Thursday, October 19, 2006

The Cherokee Symphony will be opening its 51st concert season Sunday, October 29, at 4 p.m. at the Cherokee Community Center. The first part of this program will feature animal theme music which is appropriate since conductor Lee Thorson of Storm Lake visited South Africa this summer with a trip to a game reserve. You will enjoy selections from Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake, Cats, and Dances with Wolves," a tribute to Henry Mancini ("Baby Elephant Walk/Charade/Pink Panther/ Days of Wine and Roses/ Peter Gun"), What's up at the Symphony" (medley of tunes from cartoons) and Saint Saens' "Dance Macabre".

Admission at the door is $7 per person. Season tickets will be honored and all high school age or younger are admitted free of charge. Seating is limited. The doors will close promptly when the concert starts.
