Beethoven. Strauss. Wagner. Three innovative composers who changed the world. Three exceptional musical compositions. Two performances in Miller Symphony Hall. One great orchestra, the Allentown Symphony, and one exciting soloist, Martina Filjak. This is a weekend of concerts April 5 and 6 that you do not want to miss.
Ludwig Van Beethoven (1770 - 1827) is a name that is now known by virtually everyone in the world. And his music, although it was written more than 200 years ago, resonates with us today.
When a homicidal barber has fresh meat he teams up with a pastry chef who sells tasty meat pies. The delicious musical, "Sweeney Todd," is presented at 7:30 p.m. April 10 - 12, auditorium, Notre Dame High School, 3417 Church Road, Easton.
Customers get more than a close shave when London's Fleet Street barber Sweeney Todd (Patrick Davis) polishes them off, robs their corpse and sends the meat over to his partner in crime, meat pie baker Mrs. Lovett (Alexandra Séman).
