BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Space Coast Symphony Orchestra is set to host the “America the Beautiful” patriotic concert at the Scott Center at Holy Trinity and Friday Night Locker Room’s Steve Wilson will appear as guest conductor.
The concert is set to begin at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 25.
Summer wouldn’t have the same sizzle without a patriotic concert by your Space Coast Symphony Wind Orchestra.
This red, white and blue concert will honor all those who have worn our nation’s uniform.
This all-American program will showcase our national heritage, as conductor Aaron T. Collins directs the wind orchestra with music by Richard Rodgers, Mark Piszczek, Eric Whitacre, Lee Greenwood, and marches from “The March King,” John Philip Sousa.
The concert features Eric Whitacre’s thrilling Ghost Train.
In this highly programmatic work, Eric transforms a story from American folklore of a supernatural locomotive that roars throughout the Western U.S. Rich in special effects and unique compositional techniques, this dynamic piece creates vivid aural images as the train leaves the station and passes through a varied landscape. Rounding out the program is Adam Gorb’s Yiddish Dances.
Gorb’s brilliant classic combines his passion for wind orchestra and klezmer (the folk music of Yiddish-speaking people) with his theatrical flair in five traditionally based dances.
Thrilling, touching, affectionate, endlessly inventive, vividly scored, and vibrant, this exciting work will keep you on the edge of your seat.
