What’s the holidays without classical music to put you in the spirit? This weekend hear Virginia Symphony Orchestra presents Winter Dreams.
Acclaimed cellist Julian Schwarz returns with Tchaikovsky’s delightful Rococo Variations. The VSO then takes a trip north to Finland for Sibelius’ evocative Fifth Symphony.
They’ll close with a rare treat on the concert stage, the climactic Pas de Deux from Tchaikovsky’s beloved Nutcracker.
They have two performances this weekend. One on Friday, Nov. 30 at 8 p.m. at the Ferguson Center of Arts in Newport News. Then another Sunday, Dec. 2 at 2 p.m. at the Sandler Center in Virginia Beach. Tickets start at $25.
