HAYDN - Symphony No. 90
KODALY - Hary Janos Suite
STRAVINSKY - The Firebird Suite (1945 version)
Conducted by Daniel Hege, this program is sure to elicit a smile from seasoned concertgoers and first-timers alike. Haydn's Symphony No. 90 is not without glimpses into his humorous, prankster side. And Stravinsky captivates listeners with his ballet music suite The Firebird. Even without the ballet theatre, Stravinsky's music summons the imagination to delight in Russian fairy tales of the magical glowing bird that can be a blessing or a curse to its owner.

Muscogee Hymn Suite is an orchestration of five traditional Muscogee (Creek) church hymns. One unique result of European contact is the American Indian church hymn. As missionaries fanned out across Indian Country they became the first to document our Native languages and create translations of Christian texts, including church hymns. This lead to a new series of a hybrid music, composed by tribal citizens.
