As the perfect accompaniment to this season's dramatic weather, the Penfield Symphony Orchestra will present a concert titled "Revolutionary Russians" at the Penfield High School Auditorium on April 22. Conductor David Harman will lead the PSO in Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 3 in C-Major, Op. 26 (featuring Joseph Werner, piano) and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 in E-minor, Op. 64. The piano part in the Prokofiev is dazzling from its first notes, and simply doesn't let up as it demands the pianist fly from one end of the keyboard to the other. If you think that classical music does no more than put you to sleep, then this is the program to correct that misimpression.
The Penfield Symphony Orchestra performs Monday, April 22, 7:30 p.m. at Penfield High School Auditorium, 25 High School Drive, Penfield. $12-$14, students free with ID. PenfieldSymphony.org, 872-0774.
