OboeBass! adds a seven minute sample to the fun of Sample Night in their new location in St. Paul’s Landmark Center’s Weyerhauser Auditorium. We’ll play two pieces for English horn and bass by Timothy Goplerud: an arrangement of Monk’s ‘Round Midnight, and “Schubert’s Trout served Four Ways, or Three Fishy Variations on a Familiar Theme.” Our featured image for this event was taken at our first performance for Sample Night, where we had a great time, and were voted “Audience Favorite.”
Classical and Jazzy Nutcracker. This Holiday program features the stories and music of The Nutcracker, both Tchaikovsky’s original glowing orchestral gem and Duke Ellington’s jazzy Harlem Nutcracker take on these classical tunes. We explore the life and music of both composers, discover what makes something “jazzy,” and tell the tale of The Nutcracker. This is the first in a seven-part monthly series of “Pages of Music with Rolf and Carrie” learning programs we offer at Charter House from now until May, 2015 at Charter House of Rochester.
All programs are free and open to the public of all ages!
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant
from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative
appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
