THE FOLSOM LAKE SYMPHONY
Saturday, June 3, 2017 @ 7:30 pm & Sunday, June 4, 2017 @ 2:00 pm
Think of Italy and you hear glorious music – serenading gondoliers, impassioned opera heroines, exulting choirs. You don’t have to travel to enjoy these beautiful sounds – the Folsom Lake Symphony is devoting its season finale to the music of this inspiring country.
Conductor Peter Jaffe has compiled a repertoire that ranges from classical opera – which the Italians virtually invented – to traditional Neapolitan songs such as "That's Amore," movie themes by Italian composers, Gioachino Rossini's Overture to Semiramide and Capriccio Italien, a piece Peter Tchaikovsky wrote to celebrate a visit to Rome. Playlist includes "The Prayer," "O sole mio," "Nessun dorma," and much more.
An evening in Italy wouldn’t be complete without vocalists, and this performance features three: soprano Yelena Dyachek, lyric tenor Eric Margiore and tenor Bradley Wisk.
Yelena Dyachek, a graduate of El Dorado Hills' Oak Ridge High School, was one of five winners in this year's prestigious Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, beating 1,500 singers from the United States and Canada. She has a bachelor's degree in music from the University of the Pacific and a master's from the University of Southern California.
Eric Margiore has twice won the Connecticut opera Guild Competition and was a Metropolitan Opera Auditions semifinalist. Since his professional debut with the Tulsa Opera in 2007, he has performed some of opera’s most coveted roles. He holds degrees from New York University and the Mannes College of Music.
With an unusually flexible voice range, from low baritone to high tenor, Bradley Wisk has performed opera nationwide and sings in many genres. He may look familiar: He was featured on the 2012 America's Got Talent and 2014 The Bachelorette shows. Bradley earned music degrees from Indiana University and the Manhattan School of Music.
The Folsom Symphony was founded in 2004 to bring beautiful classical and pops music to the Folsom region. In our ten seasons, we have presented more than 50 performances of some of the finest music ever written. At least three concerts a year are dedicated to major classical repertoire by such composers like Beethoven, Brahms, and Tchaikovsky. Every December we perform a holiday concert, mixing classical with traditional, Each spring we conclude our season with a pops concert featuring mainly American composers. Whatever your preferred theme, if you love wonderful music exquisitely played, we invite you to join our concerts.
