NVSO performing ‘A Scandinavian Tour’ for season opener

PHOENIX – North Valley Symphony Orchestra (NVSO) kicks off the 2019-20 concert season with an evening of music that evokes the misty fjords, rugged mountains and deep forests of Scandinavia with its “A Scandinavian Tour” concert.

The performance will take place on Saturday, October 19, starting at 7 p.m. at North Canyon High School Performing Arts Center, 1700 E. Union Hills Drive in north Phoenix.

Travel to Scandinavian countries without even leaving Phoenix, with masterpieces that include Svendsen’s Two Swedish Folksongs (Sweden), Nielsen’s Helios Overture (Denmark), Sibelius’ Karelia Suite, Op. 11 (Finland) and Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite #1 and #2 (Norway).

This concert may entice you to book your next vacation to Scandinavia.

“Audience members will recognize a number of the melodies in this concert, especially those from Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suites,” Kevin Kozacek, NVSO’s Music Director said. “The orchestra members are really looking forward to performing this concert for our community.”

North Valley Symphony Orchestra proudly provides affordable concert experiences to the community. Ticket prices are $5.00 each concert, or $15.00 for a full Season Pass to attend all four concerts. The organization’s mission to provide low-cost tickets to this concert is supported by Dave Rodrigues of Cruise Planners, in partnership with Viking Cruises.
