LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) - The Lubbock Symphony Orchestra (LSO) will host its 2022 “Ecstasy” concert on Saturday, February 26, at the Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences, starting at 7:30 p.m. We welcome everyone to come and enjoy the second performance of the year. The concert, conducted by Maestro David Cho, includes works by Alexander Scriabin, Richard Strauss, and Zoltán Kodály. The concert will focus on telling emotional and narrative stories throughout the pieces.

This concert includes:

Scriabin| Le Poème de l’extase

Strauss| Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche

Kodály| Háry János Suite

Inspired by the feelings of bliss, ecstasy, and oneness with the universe or the divine, Alexander Scriabin’s Le Poème de l’extase brings these emotions to the forefront through the magic of the symphony. Richard Strauss tells a story about the misadventures of the medieval trickster Till Eulenspiegel, weaving the musical narrative throughout the orchestra. “The LSO is excited to perform these great works by Kodaly, Scriabin and Strauss for Masterworks 3. With a full orchestra that includes large wind and brass sections, this will be a thrilling evening of music.” says Galen Wixson, LSO president and CEO.

Dinner begins at 6 p.m. and the “Ecstasy” concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets prices range from $33 to $93. For more information, call (806) 762-1688 or visit www.LubbockSymphony.org.
