The Sinfonia Gulf Coast symphony orchestra led by Music and Artistic Director Demetrius Fuller presents the third concert of the mainstage season that celebrates the classics with a twist.
SYBARITE5, the second installment of the Silver Sands Premium Outlet's Classical Connections Series, features one of the most exhilarating string groups on the scene today. The concert is at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 26 at Grace Lutheran Church in Destin.
The group, a string quintet consisting of violinists Sami Merdinian and Sarah Whitney, violist Angela Pickett, cellist Laura Metcalf and bassist Louis Levitt, take audiences on an exciting ride that engages the senses and redefines the rules. The group critics have described as “a game changer for chamber music world” will perform their compilation “Everything In Its Right Place,” a mélange of Mozart to Piazzolla to Radiohead. The quintet will join Sinfonia Gulf Coast’s full orchestra on stage. Also on the program is Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 2,” Rossini’s overture to “The Italian in Algiers” and Stravinsky’s whimsical “Suite No. 2.”
“We are thrilled to welcome back SYBARITE5 to Sinfonia Gulf Coast’s stage,” Fuller said. “Our mission as a forward-thinking arts organization is to redefine the symphony experience by presenting a fresh take on the classics, and this group does just that, making them a perfect fit within our season line up.”
Tickets for this concert range from $29.50 to $45 per person. For more information or to purchase tickets, go to SinfoniaGulfCoast.org or call 850-460-8800.
