Eunice Symphony Orchestra
Eunice’s very own Symphony Orchestra, the only symphony on the Cajun prairie, is now in its eleventh year. The orchestra is presenting its annual concert, “A Little Night Music”, on Sunday, April 1, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. The historic Liberty Theater in downtown Eunice is the setting for the performance.
The all-volunteer orchestra consists of local and area musicians, as well as some who travel from as far as New York to join their Eunice family and friends for a night of musical fun. Players of all ages and backgrounds work together for many hours to present the best possible concert, for the enjoyment of all in the audience.
This year the concert is an all-classical show, with pieces by Beethoven, Mozart, Tchaikovsky and other “greats” of the music world. Of special note this year is the presentation of the beautiful Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor, played by conductor Nancy Simon. Guest artist Tina Pilione will treat the audience to traditional Calentano music from a remote Mexican village, Tierra Caliente.
In appreciation for our audience, we will be hosting a complimentary champagne reception immediately preceding the performance. The reception will begin at 6:45 p.m., when the doors open to admit the public to the theater.
Tickets are $5.00 and may be purchased at the door or in advance by phoning 337-580-2493 or 337-457-8151. Children six and under are admitted free.
