The New Millennium Chamber Orchestra presents "A Musical Mystery Tour"
The New Millennium Chamber Orchestra, under the baton of Music Director James Richard Frieman, will perform "A Musical Mystery Tour," featuring music representing the unknown, the magical, and the mysterious.
The highlight of this autumnal concert is Edward Elgar's Variations on an Original Theme, Op. 36, more popularly known as the "Enigma Variations." The theme and variations that musically describe many of Elgar's acquaintances are based on a hidden "dark saying" which has not been definitively identified since the work was first performed in 1899.
This concert will feature other works inspired by magic and spirits, including Edvard Grieg's "In the Hall of the Mountain King," Charles Gounod's "Funeral March of a Marionette," and Modest Mussorgsky's "A Night on Bald Mountain."
The concert will also feature New Millennium's Concertmaster Colyn Fischer in the delightfully spooky "Danse Macabre" by Camille Saint-Saens.
