winter Concert: 1001
1001 things we do to escape death…. Monarch Shahryar discovered that his first wife was unfaithful to him, therefore resolving to marry a new virgin every day as he beheaded the previous day’s wife. This ensured that each new queen would be faithful to him and him alone. However, once he met wise, witty, and well-read Scheherazade, the King’s life was transformed forever. Seattle Collaborative Orchestra’s second concert series celebrates music with a twist. We perform both Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade and Leanna Primiani’s world premiere 1001, a current day musical response to Rimsky-Korsakov’s epic musical tale from Scheherazade’s perspective. Also on the program is Study for Orchestra, a mid-20th century composition by African American Guggenheim Fellow Julia Perry and Addison Kotulski who will perform the first movement of W.A Mozart’s Horn Concerto No. 3 in Eb.
Please join us on February 12, 2019, at the Roosevelt High School Theater, in Seattle Washington.
Concert time: 7:30 pm (doors open at 7:00 pm).
