"From the Opera House to the Concert Hall"
Rossini: Overture to Guillaume Tell (William Tell)
Rossini “Sois immobile” from William Tell
Rossini: “Largo al factotum” from Barber of Seville
Lucas Meachem, baritone
Brahms: Symphony No. 2
The beloved overture to Rossini’s last opera begins a concert filled with both operatic and symphonic beauty. Guest Artist Lucas Meachem joins the Classical Tahoe Orchestra to sing arias from Rossini’s operas, depicting the heroic Swiss freedom fighter William Tell, and the explosive fun of Figaro in The Barber of Seville.
Brahms’ sunny and pastoral Second Symphony, written while living on the shores of a beautiful Austrian lake, brings the brilliant Classical Tahoe Orchestra sound to the shores of Lake Tahoe.
