SADDLEBROOKE, AZ – Brazilian flutist James Strauss will perform two works with the Southern Arizona Symphony on April 6 and 7 – the premiere of Glen Roger Davis’ Tattoo Notes and Howard Hanson’s Serenade, Opus 25.

  Tucson composer Bruce Stoller will perform the solos in his Open Spaces Suite on a flute he crafted of native materials. The pianist and music teacher makes flutes from yucca and agave plants.

  The SASO program also features Wagner’s Tannhauser Overture, Hovhaness’ And God Created Great Whales and selections from Saint-Saens’ Cello Concerto No. 1. The soloist is Benjamin Nead, winner of the 2013 Dorothy Vanek Youth Concerto Competition.

Clubhouse Dr. in SaddleBrooke – and Sunday, April 7, at 3 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, 7575 N. Paseo del Norte.
