Dance, Rhythm, & Blues
January 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CST
From Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat to the ragtime riffs of Joplin’s The Entertainer, this wide-ranging program features dance music from French and American Impressionism to jazz, blues and swing. Iowa composer Michael Daugherty’s (a BQ composer) Sinatra Shag kicks off the program with swirling chromatic grooves; D’Indy’s spirited Chanson et Danses evokes the French countryside. Milhaud’s Brazilian-influenced Concerto for Percussion and Small Orchestra features Principal Percussionist Aaron Williams as soloist, while Piazzolla’s Libertango evokes Argentinian tango salons. Finally, the works of two Black American composers, William Grant Still and Scott Joplin, conclude the concert with notes of jazz, blues, and ragtime.
