“Fairy Tales Come Alive in Music and Art” is the theme of Chamber Orchestra Ogden’s March 23, 2019 concert. The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. at Peery’s Egyptian Theater, where we will perform a wide variety of music inspired by fairy tales from around the world.
This concert is presented by Peery’s Egyptian Theater and Chamber Orchestra Ogden and will be a family concert without age restrictions other than no-babes-in arms. Our repertoire will include such pieces as The Witches Ride, The Sandman Song, and Evening Prayer from “Hansel and Gretel”, music from Beauty and the Beast, Mozart’s aria The Queen of the Night from “The Magic Flute,” Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty Ballet Suite, and other works. A special highlight will be the Rimsky-Korsakov The Flight of the Bumblebee from “Tsar Saltan,” in an arrangement for woodwind quintet.
We will be featuring two soloists on this concert, coloratura soprano Cheryl Fowers, and mezzo-soprano Kiersten Erickson. You can read about them on the orchestra’s website www.chamberorchestraogden.org.
Two young dancers from Imagine Ballet Theatre will dance as Hansel and Gretel in the Dream Pantomime from the opera. Issac Haraala will dance as Hansel, and Alison Umbrell will dance as Gretel.
