Kent State University Orchestra Presents the Music of German Fairy Tales, Greek Mythology and the Argentinian Countryside
Kent, Ohio – The Kent State University Orchestra continues its 2016-2017 season with a concert on Friday, Oct. 28 at 7:30 p.m. in the University Auditorium at Cartwright Hall. Cartwright Hall is located at 650 Hilltop Drive on the Kent State University Kent campus. Free parking.
The second subscription series’ concert of the season offers a program sure to transport audience members to colorful and vibrant landscapes. From magical German fairy tales to heroic Greek Mythology, the Kent State University Orchestra conducted by Katherine Kilburn will begin with the Overture from Mozart’s “The Magic Flute.” Kent State voice faculty members Timothy Culver and Melissa Davis will then perform with the orchestra "Dies Bildnis ist bezaubernd schön" and "Ach, ich fühl's” respectively.
Written earlier this year and premiered by the Curtis Symphony Orchestra in April, Emily Cooley’s “Argo,” will be enjoyed next on the program. “Argo” refers to the name of the ship which transported Jason and the Argonauts on their journey to find the Golden Fleece. The program concludes with Alberto Ginastera’s Dances from “Estancia” featuring the rhythmic undulations of dances depicting Argentinian country life.
