Symphony of the Mountains will open its 2017-18 season, “Fantastic Fate,” with the concert “Kaleidoscope” on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Toy F. Reid Eastman Employee Center, 400 S. Wilcox Drive, Kingsport.

Tickets are $30 and can be purchased by calling 423-392-8423 or visiting www.symphonyofthemountains.org.

The symphony will be joined by Dobyns Bennett High School Band on Ottorino Respighi’s “Pines of Rome” and Richard Strauss’ “Vienna Philharmonic Fanfare.”

Pianist Steve Sensenig will play George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” with the symphony and principal harpist Cindy Hicks will be performing on Gabriel Pierné’s “Konzertstueck, Op. 39.”

A second “Kaleidoscope” concert featuring the same repertoire and musicians will be held Sunday at 3 p.m. at J.W. Adams Combined School, 10824 Orby Cantrell Highway, Pound, Va.

Tickets for Sunday’s show are $20.

A news release explains the origin of the concert’s name in this way: “The concert creates a musical journey including visits to the profound pine forests of Italy, the romantic timbre of France and the beginning of the American Jazz era. Each of these pieces come together to create a Kaleidoscope of sounds and feelings that echo the human spirit.”
