Spokane Symphony celebrates the music of Ravel



The Spokane Symphony, under the direction of Music Director Eckart Preu, will pay tribute to the great French composer, Maurice Ravel, on Saturday, February 25 at 8pm and again on Sunday, February 26 at 3pm at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox. To commemorate the 80th anniversary of Ravel's death, the orchestra will perform three of his greatest hits: La Valse, Rhapsodie espagnole and, of course, Bolero. Also on the program are selections from two other French composers: Florent Schmitt's La Tragedie de Salome and Richard Dubugnon's XIX 'Le Soleil' from Arcanes Symphoniques.

This concert has been selected for the Spokane Symphony's annual Education Classics concert. The Spokane Symphony will also honor outstanding school administrators and music teachers. This year's award winners are Carole Meyer, Principal of Salk Middle School; Taylor Belote from Deer Park Middle/High School; and Lisa Martin of Prairie View Elementary in the Mead.

Tickets are available at the Box Office, by calling 509-624-1200 and online at www.spokanesymphony.org. Tickets are also available at all TicketsWest outlets.

As part of the Spokane Symphony's commitment to honor educators, there are a limited quantity of $20 tickets available for teachers and school administrators.
