Name: Bozeman Symphony Presents: Firebird and a World Premiere Celebrating Yellowstone’s 150th
Date: February 25, 2023 - February 26, 2023
Event Description:
Join the Bozeman Symphony Orchestra and virtuoso soloist Carrie Krause for a fiery start to the Classical Series performances in 2023 with Firebird and Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5 on February 25 and 26. The program opens with an exhilarating world premiere piece by Composer-in-Residence Scott Lee honoring 150 years of our treasured Yellowstone National Park. Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite ends the program with an explosion of power and goodness, igniting a wildfire of musical bliss.

The Fire Beneath is a brand-new piece celebrating Yellowstone’s 150th anniversary. “I feel very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to visit this incredible park and represent it in music for this important milestone,’ says composer Scott Lee. “I hope that my piece will remind the Bozeman Symphony's musicians and audience members of their own experiences and memories of Yellowstone, as well as engage them as performers and listeners on its own as a captivating and exciting piece of music." Scott Lee, a dynamic composer who combines classical form with the more visceral rhythmic language of contemporary popular music, is Bozeman Symphony’s first-ever Composer-In-Residence.

The concert continues as Concertmaster Carrie Krause performs Mozart’s elegant Violin Concerto No.5. “This piece is my favorite of Mozart's works for violin,’ says Krause. “I have played this concerto a number of times in the past, but I am enjoying rediscovering it on a newly acquired instrument. The audience will hear cadenzas that I sketched out during the fall of 2022 while on the banks of the Moldau River in Prague, Mozart's most beloved city.” Krause has been on sabbatical for the 2022-23 season and Bozeman Symphony is excited to welcome her back for this performance.

Performances will be held in person on Saturday, February 25 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, February 26 at 2:30 PM, at the Willson Auditorium (404 West Main Street) in downtown Bozeman. These performances would not be possible without strong community support and sponsorship. Bozeman Symphony wishes to thank Sharon Eversman, Gary Kunis and Connie Wong, Iris M.L.
