Event Info

When you join the Reston Community Orchestra for Spats N’ Chaps you will hear two pairs of wildly contrasting symphonic dances, plus a Beethoven masterpiece interpreted by a talented young violinist – all under the baton of Dingwall Fleary!

Tchaikovsky’s 1878 opera Eugene Onegin actually centers on a love-struck young woman of Russia’s rural landed gentry, Tatyana. Two popular concert numbers from the opera are a gay Waltz, danced by partygoers celebrating Tatyana’s 17th birthday, and a glittering ballroom Polonaise, marking her entry into Moscow’s high society five years later. These sophisticated Russian scenarios contrast with the cowboys-and-rancheros world of Aaron Copland’s “western” ballet, Rodeo. Buckaroos and cowgirls pair up to slow-dance in a hesitant and tender Saturday Night Waltz, followed by a raucous Hoe-Down featuring a lightning-fast fiddle tune and a barn-burning Texas reel.

The RCO will also shine a “spotlight on youth.” Teenager George Pekarsky, a student at Westfield High School, will perform Beethoven’s flashy and tuneful Violin Concerto with the orchestra, a challenge for even the most celebrated virtuoso players
