Lake Union Civic Orchestra: Ravel, Guinivan and Berlioz
Love Percussion?   This LUCO concert is for you!  
On Friday, June 3rd, the Lake Union Civic Orchestra performs Guinivan's Concerto for Percussion.  The composer is the winner of the 2008 ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Award.  This explosive piece employs Vibraphone, Xylophone, Tam Tam, Chimes, Triangle, gong, celesta, harps, and crotules (little brass cymbals).  Also, on the program, is Ravel's Alborada del Gracioso (Morning Song of a Jester), a Spanish/Catalan inspired piece using castanets, tambourine, snare drum, and 2 harps, that will make you want to Samba in the aisles of Town Hall!

The final piece is Berlioz' Symphonie Fantastique.  This is the story of a young musician, who in the depths of lovesick despair, attempts suicide with opium, but only takes enough to induce psychedelic hallucinations.   The last movement is the familiar Witches' Sabbath, which a lot of people will recognize from Julia Robert's movie, Sleeping with the Enemy.


Ravel:  Alborada del Graciosos
Guinivan:  Concerto for Percussion
Berlioz:  Symphonie Fantastique*

Rebecca Baggenstoss, percussion
James Truher, asst. conductor*

Single tickets: $15 general admission, $10 seniors (62 and older) and students, 12 years of age and under free.

Starting at 6:30 and during Intermission, there will also be a SILENT AUCTION, where you can drink wine and bid on beach vacation houses, sailing excursions, concert tickets, fine dining, and fine art.  What a great Friday night!
