Nanaimo Chamber Orchestra August 15 2014
A Cornucopia of Musical Temptations
Over the years, we in the Nanaimo Chamber Orchestra have played a lot of delicious music, so when we’re asked to play a concert of this sort — something lighter, sweeter, perhaps less ‘challenging’ to the ear (although not necessarily for our fingers!) –, we look at what new goodies have turned up in our library, as well as reviewing some old favourites. You’re likely to hear everything from the stirring Theme from Downton Abbey to a jazzy Joplin waltz; then, maybe one of Vivaldi’s timeless depictions of changing seasons, or the wild gypsy passion of Bizet’s Habañera or a Brahms Hungarian dance, from the indescribable beauty of a single movement by Mozart or Bach followed, perhaps, by themes from Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean or Harry Potter movie scores, and so on…!
So, whatever your taste, we’ll likely play something you already know and love, PLUS you have a very good chance of walking out of our concerts actually whistling something you may never have heard before, just as they did in the days when live performances were the ONLY performances!
