The incredible aerialists, jugglers and acrobats of Cirque de la Symphonie return by popular demand as the West Michigan Symphony opens its 2013-14 season on Sept. 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m.
Back for their second appearance on – and above – the stage of the majestic Frauenthal Center for the Performing Arts, the Cirque performers will join the orchestra for a remarkable evening of music and magic. The Cirque performers played to near sell-out crowds when they joined WMS in March 2012, wowing audiences with their incredible grace, movement and strength.
While the Cirque performers entertain and amaze, Music Director Scott Speck will lead the musicians through performances of classical works, including Tchaikovsky’s “Valse” from “Swan Lake,” Debussy’s “Suit Bergmanasque-Claire de Lune” and Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Danse des Bouffons” from “The Snow Maiden.”
