Britt Classical Festival - Final Week
So, we have reached the last week of this year's Britt Festival. There are three concerts this weekend, only two of which I will be performing on.
Friday night's concert is entitled Music for the Eyes. It will feature photochoreography by James Westwater. The Britt Festival Orchestra will be performing excerpts from Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, Serenade to Music by Vaughan Williams, Siegfried's Rhine Journey by Wagner, and Copland's Appalachian Spring Suite.
I am off for Saturday's concert. It is a family concert featuring the Magic Circle Mime Company.
Sunday night's concert is Rhapsody in Red, White and Blue, featuring James Chubet, the Britt Festival Orchestra's pianist. We will be doing works by Gershwin and Bernstein.

Britt Classical Festival
My blog entries have been a little sporadic this summer due to an extensive travel schedule. Currently, I find myself in beautiful southern Oregon performing at the Britt Classical Festival. Fortunately for me, the Pacific Northwest seems to be one of the few places in the continental US that is not being baked by 100 degree weather!
The Britt Orchestra will be performing several programs over the next three weeks. Friday night's program will feature Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade, Saint-Saens' 2nd Piano Concerto, and the Dance of the Seven Veils from Salome by Richard Strauss.
On Saturday night, Sarah Chang will perform Vivaldi's Four Seasons followed by Saint-Saens' Organ Symphony.
