Three diverse and dynamic musical compositions make up the program when McCallum Theatre Education and The Desert Symphony co-present Painting Pictures with Music.  Under the direction of Gary Berkson, the Symphony will play Prelude to Carmen by George Bizet, Bedrich Smetana’s The Moldau and end with Danzón No. 2, a vividly colorful work by the contemporary Mexican composer Arturo Márquez. Each one of the orchestra’s many different instruments – strings, winds, brass and percussion - powerfully contribute to the bigger picture when the Symphony takes center-stage.  Join us on this rich musical journey guided by Maestro Berkson himself!
