Fairy Tales by the AASO

 

continued

She'll recall the nimble grace of Rossini's Overture to The Thieving Magpie, the elfin energy of Mendelssohn's Scherzo from A Midsummer Night's Dream, and the sweeping, swaying waltzes from Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty and Prokofiev's Cinderella. She really liked it when Samuel Rast, the horn player from Pioneer High School, played the Allegro from Mozart's First Horn Concerto. And she really, really liked John Williams's Symphonic Suite from the Harry Potter movies. But she just loved the Firebird by Stravinsky, loved how the Infernal Dance made her feel really scared, the Lullaby made her feel really safe, and the Apotheosis made her feel really good.

As someone takes the first watch while the rest settle back and try to ignore the unnamable things that go bump in the night, they all remember what it was like when the sweet sound of music filled the air.

The AASO adult and family concerts are Saturday and Sunday respectively, March 10 and 11, at the Michigan Theater. Whatever happens afterward, you'll always have the memories.
