Announcing: A Special Benefit Concert featuring Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat

Apr 24, 2019 | News

A special benefit concert for the Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestras Chamber Music Program, Igor Stravinsky’s “The Soldier’s Tale” examines how war can affect us individually and as a society. Now 100 years old, this captivating folktale tells the story of a soldier, a violin, and the devil set to music. What happens when you sell your fiddle in exchange for wealth? What if the buyer happens to be the embodiment of evil: Satan?

Wisconsin Public Radio’s Norman Gilliland will bring this enthralling tale to life with a performance by some of Madison’s most talented musicians:
Kyle Knox, Conductor
Naha Greenholtz, Violin
Jeff Takaki, Bass
JJ Koh, Clarinet
Brian Ellingboe, Bassoon
Matthew Onstad, Cornet
Tom Macaluso, Trombone
Joe Bernstein, Percussion
