Evelyn Glennie and The Winnipeg Symphony on Classical Showcase
The next Classical Showcase Friday evening at 7 on Classical 101 features the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra in a program that reflects Canadian culture and the Manitoba province in particular. This concert is part of the Spring for Music Series at Carnegie Hall in New York City that we've been presenting this past month. Alexander Mikelthwate conducts three U. S. premiers in this concert. Scottish percussionist Evelyn Glennie is the soloist for The Shaman: Concerto for Percussion and Orchestra by Vincent Ho. Derek Clarke's 13 Inuit Throat Song Games features throat singer Tanya Tagag and orchestra, and the piece has been called "the ultimate Canadian, Nordic experience." The First Symphony of one of Canada's most prominent composers, R. Murray Schafer is also on the program. Join us for music from north of the border on the next Classical Showcase here on Classical 101 Friday evening at 7.
