Concert 1: It’s Time for Jubilation

Sunday, September 9, 2018 at 3:00pm | ArcBest Performing Arts Center

Overture to the 1940 film The Sea Hawk by Eric Wolfgang Korngold.

Simple Gifts and Bought Me a Cat by Aaron Copland, Nature Boy by Nat King Cole and American spirituals.

Scheherazade by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1888).

This concert features one of the great action film scores of all time. You will hear quintessential heroic brass and lush Romantic music for strings from one of the greatest Swashbuckler films ever. Jubilant Sykes, one of the most prominent baritones in the world today, will sing a selection of songs with orchestra from classic Americana. Scheherazade (Sha-hair-a-zaad) is a musical depiction of the epic story of One Thousand and One Nights.

This music is exotic and very emotional with larger than life musical gestures that are incredibly riveting.
