A magical glowing bird doesn’t seem like it’d be anything but a blessing, but in Igor Stravinsky’s Firebird, it’s also a curse. The Russian folk legend of the firebird describes the bird’s infernal dance and its enchanting powers over others. Stravinsky’s work is most frequently related to ballet, but Charleston Symphony Orchestra believes the music is so hauntingly memorable that it’ll center an entire evening around it. Ralph Vaughan Williams, Edward Elgar, and Richard Strauss are among the featured composers that will complement Firebird, and CofC professor, recording artist, and cello master Natalia Khoma will perform these classical hits. Firebird is also Ken Lam’s audition to be the CSO’s next music director. The CSO will hold a pre-concert talk at 6:30 p.m., giving audience members the chance to converse with Khoma and Lam. The pre-concert discussion is free for all ticket holders
