We welcome The Heartland Marimba Quartet in two pieces this concert. What an incredible sound—and sight—to hear four marimbas and orchestra perform!
The program starts with Heartland Marimba's long awaited performance of Gottschalk's Grande Tarantelle, which was programmed on our canceled May 2020 season finale.
Scott Joplin, American composer and pianist, was the foremost composer of ragtime compositions. Heartland Marimba Quartet is featured in a medley of favorites.
We also feature the first symphony of Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges: classical composer, virtuoso violinist, & conductor of the leading symphony orchestra in Paris.
A rarely heard gem, Schubert’s Fifth Symphony, finishes this program with unique tenderness and beauty.
