California Symphony honors our feathered friends in TAKE FLIGHT at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek on Saturday, January 29 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, January 30 at 4:00 p.m. Soaring larks, clucking hens, a mystical swan, and the wafting sounds of the Bohemian countryside provide the inspiration for these bird-themed concerts. Concertmaster Jennifer Cho is featured in Vaughan Williams’ gorgeous masterpiece for solo violin The Lark Ascending, which regularly appears in all-time favorite classical music polls. Dvorák’s Symphony No. 8 bursts with cheerfulness and optimism to invigorate and elevate spirits. Tickets include a free 30-minute pre-concert talk plus the chance to take selfies in the lobby with Lindsay Wildlife Experience Animal Ambassador, Houston the Barred Owl.
