CLASSICAL | RPO with Isabel Leonard 

Spanish art songs take center stage at Kodak Hall this week, when prominent mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard joins the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and Music Director Ward Stare. The Metropolitan Opera star will sing Manuel de Falla's "Seven Popular Spanish Songs" as well as a set of works by Enrique Granados. The program will also include several Spanish-tinged crowd-pleasers: excerpts from Rossini's opera "The Barber of Seville," "Capriccio espangol" by Rimsky-Korsakov, and Ravel's ubiquitous "Bolero" — a masterful exercise in orchestral textures with a use of repetition that is positively proto-minimalist.

The RPO and Isabel Leonard perform on Thursday, October 5, at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, October 7, at 8 p.m., at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs Street. $24-$104. 454-2100;;
