A Sensational Season of Symphonies

Your West Valley Symphony is preparing some of the

world’s greatest music for you this season.

You don’t want to miss a program, so subscribe early!

 2 Symphonies, 1 Concert!

Beethoven: Coriolan Overture
Beethoven:  Symphony No. 8 in F Major
Mendelssohn:  Symphony No. 4 in A Major, Italian

Beethoven’s 8th Symphony is often neglected due to its position between the monumental 7th and 9th.  However, you won’t find a better example of Beethoven’s biting sense of humor than in this fabulous piece of music.  We open with Beethoven’s dark and brooding Coriolan Overture and Mendelssohn brightens up the day with a blotch of the brightest possible sunlight captured in his Italian Symphony.
