WILLIAMS Main Title & Imperial March from Star Wars
WILLIAMS Hedwig’s Theme from Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone
WILLIAMS  Catch Me If You Can: Escapades for Alto Saxophone & Orchestra - Allen Cordingley, saxophone 
GILBERTSON  Tragedy Tomorrow
RIMSKY-KORSAKOV  Scheherazade

                           

This program combines some of the great film scores of John Williams with one of the most beautiful and well-loved symphonic favorites, Scheherazade, a work inspired by the stories of the “Arabian Nights.”  We feature local saxophone master Allen Cordingley in the jazzy music from the film Catch Me If You Can.  The orchestra performed “Tragedy Tomorrow” by Dubuque-native Michael Gilbertson in 2012, and this wonderful work, inspired by photographs of New York City in the 1920’s, is being “encored” on this concert.

Program notes will be available soon
