“Night Music, or Nachtmusik, is classical entertainment music intended for intimate evening gatherings,” Larry Lang, Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra executive director, said of FSO’s upcoming virtual program. The production of Night Music has been adjusted from the original full orchestra to small ensembles that will ensure the safety of FSO musicians and staff while still allowing for the highest quality experience. Compositions to be played include Vincent d’Indy’s “Chanson et Danses,” Wolfgang A Mozart’s “Serenade #12 in C Minor” and Gary Carpenter’s “Ein Musikalisches Snookerspiel.” Until it is safe to return to in-person programming, all are invited to enjoy a relaxing evening of Nachtmusik from the comfort of their own homes while supporting the orchestra, which has been a staple of Flagstaff’s art and music community for more than 70 years. The on-demand program will be available online Feb. 20 through Feb. 28. Visit for tickets and more information.
