BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Fjords. Trolls. And Vikings. As our Florida summer heats up, the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra offers a cool musical journey to enchanted lands carved by glaciers.

On Saturday, July 23 at 7 p.m., the SCSO will present a Scandinavian Road Trip at the Scott Center for the Performing Arts at Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy, 5625 Holy Trinity Drive in north Melbourne.

Scandinavian Road Trip pulls out of the station with Hans Christian Lumbye’s “Copenhagen Steam Railway Galop,” a celebrated work that faithfully recreates the sounds of a chugging train.

Then composer Carl Nielsen brings to mind the romantic intrigue of a glittering masked ball in his overture to the Danish opera Maskarade.

“A confession of the soul” is what Jean Sibelius called his Symphony No. 2, a work that gave hope to the Finnish people struggling with Russian oppression.

Rounding out the trip to northern Europe is Trombone Concerto by Denmark’s Launy Grøndahl, performed by Miami-based Thomas McKee. A classically trained tenor trombonist, McKee is also a teacher, composer, and arranger.

$30 tickets are available through the orchestra website at SpaceCoastSymphony.org or at Marine Bank & Trust in Suntree. Tickets at the door are $35.

Concertgoers aged 18 and under or with a college ID are admitted free to every SCSO concert.

Passes for the entire 2022-23 performing season are available, as well as ticket “flex packs,” good for any five subscription concerts.

Space Coast Symphony Orchestra Conductor and Artistic Director, Aaron T. Collins looks forward to featuring Miami trombonist Thomas McKee during the Scandinavian Road Trip.

“We are fortunate to have many high-caliber musicians in the SCSO,” said Collins. “And Thomas is a great example.

The trombone concerto he is performing makes it clear to the listener what makes him a true standout.”

Concertgoers aged 18 and under or with a college ID are admitted free to every SCSO concert.
