Elgin Symphony Orchestra performs the music of Henry Mancini this weekend!
Last night, I had the great pleasure of sitting in the audience for the dress rehearsal of this program. Since my duties with Joffrey Ballet conflict with this concert, Chris Davis is filling in for me as bass trombonist of the ESO. The whole orchestra sounds fantastic and I am a little bummed to not be able to play with them this week. (Playing a ridiculously challenging and fun ballet by Elliot Goldenthal kind of makes up for it!)
Guest conductor, Michael Berkowitz has the orchestra using the actual music from the Mancini library. Really great stuff...go check it out if you can.
