The Sinfonia returns to the beautiful Church of St. Mary Magdalene on Sunday, June 3, at 2:00 in the afternoon, with a concert featuring Antonin Dvorak’s profound Symphony No. 7, in D Minor. Considered by many to be the composer’s finest symphony, this work has passages of darker drama than we often hear in Dvorak, yet also has his trademark lovely melodies and Czech flavor. Also featured will be Carl Maria von Weber’s Andante and Hungarian Rondo, with Music Teachers Association Competition winner Zackery Edwards as bassoon soloist. Rounding out on this program will be the haunting “Blades of Grass,” for English Horn and Strings, by American composer Romeo Cascarino, and two of the vibrant Hungarian Dances of Johannes Brahms. The Church is located at 1945 Illion St., atop a hill with a spectacular view of Mission Bay.
