Camellia Symphony Orchestra’s ‘Russian Fantasy’


This month, the Camellia Symphony Orchestra is bringing Russian folktales to life in their program appropriately called “Russian Fantasy” on Feb. 8 and 9 at the Sacramento City College Performing Arts Center.

The program will include excerpts from the fantastical ballet score “The Firebird” by Igor Stravinsky, as well as work by the composer who was originally intended to write the music to accompany the beloved ballet: Anatoly Lyadov. Sergei Prokofiev’s “1st Violin Concerto” will round out the evening, performed by a special guest: San Francisco native Alina Kobialka—who is not only tremendously talented, but she’s also only 16 years old!

For tickets and more information, call (916) 929-6655 or visit The Sacramento City College Performing Arts Center is located at 3835 Freeport Blvd.
