The final Spectrum concert of the season will highlight a work by iconic 20th-century Russian composer Igor Stravinsky, titled “The Soldier’s Tale.” This powerful and evocative work, a music-theater piece, presents a tale of the seductive nature of wanting to have it all. A young soldier on leave sells his precious fiddle to an old man in exchange for a book that promises great riches, and his troubles begin from there. Dramatic narration and a combination of dances, marches, and Jazz come together to tell the story of a man who makes a deal with the Devil and, of course, lives to regret it. Please note that this concert is being held in the Sanctuary at FUMCFW.
