SymphonyCast Invites You to Dance, April 2020


Carl Maria von Weber wrote a piece that will be featured this month on SymphonyCast. "Invitation to the Dance" is a description of a dance, not necessarily a dance-piece in itself. The piece was orchestrated by Berlioz, and you can dance along as you listen this month (4/17).
