Highlight from the Jammies

The Sacramento Philharmonic Orchestra presents Elgar’s Enigma
Saturday, March 29, 2008

Elgar’s Enigma is one of classical music’s favorite pieces. The Sacramento Philharmonic celebrates National Music in the Schools Month at the concert by featuring select performers from this year’s Jammies concert and violin students from the Philharmonic’s “Perfect Pitch” education programs.

The concert also features the talented soprano Talise Trevigne who will perform Richard Strauss’ Vier Letzte Lieder (Four Last Songs) which was inspired by the poems of Herman Hesse. The Sacramento Philharmonic will also perform excerpts from the film score of Ben-Hur written by Miklós Rózsa.
