The first concert in the 2016 Sounds of Summer Series, presented by Orlando Philharmonic Principal Percussion John Patton, this program features Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat (The Soldier’s Tale).  L’Histoire tells the story of Joseph, a soldier returning home on leave and his encounters with the devil along the way.  Intended by Stravinsky to be “read, played and danced” this performance will be narrated by Orlando favorite Philip Nolen, with dances for the non-speaking role of the Princess choreographed by Sunny Raskin. Also on this concert is And Legions Will Rise, written by Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer Kevin Puts. Puts describes his piece as representing “the power in all of us to transcend during times of tragedy and personal crisis.”
