VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis with Sagaland* by Westwater Arts
SIBELIUS Finlandia
ROSSINI Overture to William Tell
SMETANA The Moldau and From Bohemia’s Woods & Fields from Má Vlast with Czech Journeys** by Westwater Arts

Beautiful orchestral works of Ralph Vaughan Williams and Bedřich Smetana will be enhanced by the breathtaking imagery and photochoreography of Westwater Arts. The evening begins with a world premiere by Vero Beach native Scott McAllister. Sibelius wrote Finlandia as a way of protesting censorship from Russia and, as such, was often performed under false titles to hide its true intent. William Tell was Rossini’s final opera, known today mostly for its popular, familiar Overture.

*Photographed, produced, and performed by Nicholas Bardonnay.
**Commissioned by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and The Toronto Symphony, photographed and co-produced by
Nicholas Bardonnay and James Westwater, and performed by Nicholas.
