Description

Join the Bloomington Symphony Orchestra on March 23rd for a concert with hidden depths…

The Hebrides, op.26 – Fingal’s Cave 
Felix Mendelssohn’s richly atmospheric tone poem was inspired by the majesty of Scotland’s western coast.

Aqua
American composer Steve Heitzeg’s Aqua is a series of variations based on a single theme of the boundless ocean. At times shimmering, raucous, turbulent, and plaintive, Aqua is a tribute to the life and work of Jacques-Yves Cousteau.

Peter Grimes: Four Sea Interludes, op.33a 
Britten Britten’s powerfully evocative interludes transport the listener to the Suffolk coastline, feeling the salt spray on their face, the wind in their hair.

Fantasie for Viola 
Alice Ford, soloist. The first place winner of our 2019 Youth Concerto Competition will perform Hummel’s lively Fantasie which features a bewitching use of clarinets in the accompaniment.

Also on the program are two new pieces from local composers –
Among Waves

Alex Berko, an exceptional student at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, spent a week in residence at the Glen Deven Ranch in Big Sur, drawing inspiration from the deep beauty of the landscape for inclusion in his new orchestral work.

From Under
Composer Jamie Kunselman says this fanciful piece “reminds me of a nebulous monster from under your bed as a child…in a Monster’s Inc. sort of way.”

Doors will open at 6:30pm for this reserved seating event. The program will last approximately 90 min.

This performance made possible by the generous support of Deep Blue Gear / Snorkel-Mart.
