Sinfonia Gulf Coast Performs The Soldiers Tale: Music of Stravinsky and Mozart


Sinfonia Assistant Conductor Aaron King Vaughn leads the orchestra On Saturday March 12  in this concert of riveting repertoire including Igor Stravinsky’s “The Soldier’s Tale” complete with theatrical narration and W.A. Mozart’s whimsically charming “Symphony no. 29 in A Major.” This is the perfect classical concert for the entire family.


“The Soldier’s Tale” follows the story of a soldier, Joe, and the Devil. The Devil tricks Joe into trading his violin for a magical book that provides wealth and success. This costs Joe his family, his happiness, and 20 years of his life. Written in 1918, the story is historically significant due to its incorporation of folk music and complex rhythm. The piece features the violin, double bass, clarinet, trumpet, bassoon, trombone, percussion, and local, Bruce Collier, as the narrator that will portray various characters.

Collier’s long history of professional theatrical performances includes numerous local productions through Emerald Coast Theatre Company and the Seaside REP, as well as across the nation at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival, the Courtyard Playhouse in New York City, New Horizons Theatre in Michigan and more. He also recently directed Picasso at the Lapin Agile at Northwest Florida State College. Collier is currently serving as the Editor of the DeFuniak Springs Herald – Beach Breeze. The concert will highlight music from around the world with pieces inspired by the dance traditions of Panama, the European works of Mozart, and the Russian composer, Igor Stravinsky.
