Even if the temperature isn’t, the music will be hot Saturday night, February 13 at Jackson College’s Potter Center at 7:30 p.m.! Guest conductor Darryl One (O nay) brings to Jackson a program filled with Humor, Spookiness, Grief and Grandeur. Rossini’s overture to The Barber of Seville, St. Saens diabolical Danse Macabre, Suppe’s Get Up and Go Light Calvary and Massenet’s Le Cid-dance music from many regions of Spain. In a season that is entitled Joy and Sorrow February 13th’s program has strong representatives for both emotions as well as many in between - the somberness of Ravel’s Pavane for a Dead Princess and the illuminating introspection of Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on Greensleeves; a truly global exploration of cultures and expression. The concert is sponsored by Erin Mazur and Marco Shehab.
Tickets are available $32, $27, $18 by going online at www.JacksonSymphony.org or phone 517-782-3221.
