Event Details

The Piano Concerto in A Minor, Opus 16 by Edvard Grieg is one of his most popular works and among the most popular piano concertos ever written. Its power and lyricism transport audiences to the fjords of Norway through folk dances of his native country. Our piano soloist, Crystal Zimmerman, thrilled the audience in our performance of Tolga Kashif’s The Queen Symphony. She is back to bring the magic of Edvard Grieg’s concerto to its full potential. Buckle your seatbelts for a life changing performance of this beautiful piano concerto!

French composer Paul Dukas brought to life the story of a young apprentice to a powerful sorcerer in his programmatic work, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Based on a poem by Goethe, this vivid musical depiction of the story attracted the attention of Walt Disney, who cast Mickey Mouse in the role of the young apprentice in his 1940 cartoon masterpiece Fantasia.

For his musical inspiration, Michael Colgrass looked to the writings of Carlos Casteneda, who wrote of his studies with a Yaqui Indian shaman to learn mystical powers that had descended from the Toltecs. Winds of Nagual, A Musical Fable for Wind Ensemble on the Writings of Carlos Castaneda is an inventive suite of eight movements of some of the most creative musical scoring of the 20th century.
