PENSACOLA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA PRESENTS ANTICIPATED PERFORMANCE: “BEETHOVEN & BLUE JEANS”

{WEAR} {News3} :: Entertainment News - PENSACOLA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA PRESENTS ANTICIPATED PERFORMANCE: “BEETHOVEN & BLUE JEANS”

Don't miss the Pensacola Symphony Orchestras Beethoven & Blue Jeans concert on Saturday, January 10th at 8PM at the Saenger Theatre. Come wearing your best denim for a blend of upbeat symphonic music!

The PSO will perform eight short pieces sure to entertain one and all.  Filled with high-energy and festive music, the program consists of pieces by Charles Ives, Leonard Bernstein, and most certainly Beethoven. Yet, there is so much more to anticipate. Joseph Alessi, principal trombonist of the New York Philharmonic, will be featured on two pieces that were written exclusively for him. One of them, by Enrique Crespo, will be receiving its world premiere performance at this concert.

Alessis performance is not one to be missed. Maestro Peter Rubardt explains, Every now and then an instrumentalist comes along that redefines what is possible on an instrument. They develop new techniques, new sounds, even new equipment, and in the process they change how future generations play and write for the instrument. Joe Alessi is one of those players.
The evening is packed with even more spectacular music, including a brilliant arrangement of Leonard Bernstein's award-winning musical, West Side Story. The original musical is about the story of star crossed lovers from opposing street gangs in the slums of Manhattan. Rollicking dance numbers, like Mambo and Cool, contrast the musics dramatic ending. Even if you aren't familiar with the story-line, it provides great entertainment and a wealth of memorable melodies. Closing the concert will be Charles Ives Variations on America, a unique piece featuring alterations of a familiar traditional American song. Its an electrifying ending to a fantastic night of live orchestral music.

There will be a special matinee dress rehearsal for the concert beginning at 2PM. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the Palafox entrance of the Saenger Theatre. Starting at 7PM, Dr. Larry Reed will present Classical Conversations. Its a chance to go behind the scenes and learn about each piece of music, as well as the opportunity to interact with the evenings guest artist. The event is free with your concert ticket.

Tickets are on sale now and start at only $22. Call the PSO office at (850) 435-2533 or order online at www.pensacolasymphony.com
