A Day With Mozart and Rimsky-Korsakov
Join music teacher Sandy Eastman and the San Luis Symphony for the dress rehearsal of "Orchestra Night" at Classics in the Cohan featuring two lush, romantic pieces that showcase the amazing orchestra. The classic tale of 1,001 Arabian Nights is set to music in Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's colorful and exotic Scheherazade. The story of the Sultana Scheherazade and the fascinating tales that saved her life have been told and re-told for hundreds of years. At this concert, you can close your eyes and imagine yourself in another world. Mozart's "Great G minor Symphony" will round out a night of classics with the Central Coast's favorite Symphony orchestra, your San Luis Obispo Symphony. Join us for a night of stories. 1,001 tales of music and mystery and more.
This course will be in two parts. In the morning, there Sandy will present a lecture about the composers and about the pieces that are to be played in the rehearsal. In the afternoon, the class, as a group, will attend the dress rehearsal of the performance.
