MOMIX: Alchemia

  • May 1, 2015 at 8:00 pm

Concert Hall

This inventive company of dancer-illusionists brings its dazzling multimedia spectacle Alchemia to our stage. This new work about the art of alchemy was born of the brilliant and untamed mind of MOMIX's genius choreographer Moses Pendleton. It manipulates the four classic elements: earth, air, fire, and water, to create a visually arresting theatrical experience full of whimsy, sensuality, beauty, and intrigue. Pendleton's choreography and his company have enthralled audiences for over three decades on stages all over the world -- including the 2014 Olympic opening ceremonies -- with their athletic virtuosity and outstanding innovation, combined with hypnotic music, inventive props, and outrageous and vibrant costumes. "The mad and marvelous troupe has all of the mesmeric power of a magic show." (Globe and Mail)

Christopher Zimmer, conductor

Concert Hall

Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 24
Stanislav Khristenko, piano

Tchaikovsky: Symphony No.5

The FSO’s final concert this season features pianist Stanislav Khristenko, First Prize winner of the 2013 Cleveland International Piano Competition.  Ukrainian born pianist Stanislav Khristenko has captivated audiences around the globe since his first solo recital at the age of eleven.  He has been called a “poet of piano,” “an architect of great forms” (Le Soir).  The New York Times praised his recent Zankel Hall recital as being marked by ”thoughtful lucidity and restraint,” and The Washington Post wrote “it was clear that Khristenko knows how to spin a story; his pacing was mature and unhurried, the dynamic range wide, and his fingers exhibited power and sensitivity.”  

Praised by critics and music industry leaders alike as “A wonderful combination of technical excellence, passion and commitment," and “crackling with electricity and almost physical power” the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra is recognized as one of the leading orchestras in the Washington area.  Founded in 1957 and led since 2009 by the dynamic conductor Christopher Zimmerman, the orchestra continues in its mission to explore and present the symphonic repertoire, both traditional and modern, for the diverse audiences of the Northern Virginia region while building musicians and audiences of the future through their education and outreach programs. The FSO, under the direction of Zimmerman, was honored as the 2013 winner of the Best Classical Orchestra Ensemble by Washington Area Musical Awards.

STARS 2015: Courage

  • May 21, 2015 at 7:00 pm

Harris Theatre

Each year, the sixth grade students at Hunters Woods Elementary School write, produce, and perform an event called STARS. STARS is known as Student Theatre Arts Reflection Spectacular, and each year the students choose a new, original theme. This year's 2015 theme is Courage, and each one-act play represents some aspect of how people show courage in different ways. Students worked tirelessly all year to write scripts; learn acting techniques and memorize lines and blocking; choreograph dance; design and create sets; compose music and songs; publicize the event; and document the event through photography. Get ready for an amazing performance!
