GR Symphony Presents Scheherazade | October 5 through October 6

GR Symphony Presents Scheherazade

Grand Rapids Symphony brings Scheherazade to DeVos Performance Hall on Friday, October 5 and Saturday, October 6. 


In the legendary tale of “The Arabian Nights,” Scheherazade mesmerizes the Sultan each night with a new story for 1,001 nights in a row, eventually causing the Sultan to fall in love and marry her. Meanwhile, for nearly 130 years, audiences have regularly fallen in love with Rimsky-Korsakov’s dazzling musical portrayal of Scheherazade. You’ll be mesmerized as well by legendary French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, who has more than 50 recordings to his credit, performing Aram Khachaturian’s Piano Concerto. The Armenian folk-flavored, crowd-pleasing showpiece pits soloist vs. orchestra in an epic musical battle.
