Jennifer Frautschi, Michael Butterman and 60 hungry musicians at Riverview Theater Sat, Jan 30, 7:30 pm: it's the return of the SSO
Grammy-nominated violinist Jennifer Frautschi joins Maestro Michael Butterman and the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra in the first SSO concert to be performed in two seasons. The All-Tchaikovsky show is Sat, Jan 30 at 7:30 p.m. at the Riverview Theater.
“The power and emotional intensity of Tchaikovsky’s music," says Butterman, "makes it the perfect way for the Shreveport Symphony to return to the stage. It will be a thrill for our audiences to hear internationally-acclaimed violinist Jennifer Frautschi with our great orchestra. And, with his Fifth Symphony, Tchaikovsky laid bare his soul -- from the sublime melody of the second movement to the high-energy finale. His music connects with listeners in a very deep and personal way.”
