Familiar tunes, percussive street sounds, cowboy music of the Wild West and soaring melodies — these will be part of the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra’s Fall Concert at 7 p.m. Friday at the Crossroads Bible Church.
In his second year as music director for LASO, conductor Dr. Ivan Shulman will lead the orchestra in a concert tour.
The Brahms “Academic Festival Overture” will open the concert. Composed as a thank you note to the University of Breslau, after receiving an honorary doctorate, Brahms included a variety of college drinking songs. Always the curmudgeonly joker, these appear loose and episodic — in a sort of “tongue in cheek” structure.
Violinist Roberta Arruda, originally from Brazil, will solo in the Saint-Saens Violin Concerto No. 3. Saint-Saens has been described as the “compleat Frenchman” — accomplished pianist, organist, prolific author on many subjects, linguist, raconteur and world traveler.
“I produce music like an apple tree produces apples,” Saint-Saens said. His third violin concerto is one of his most popular works.
