The Newport Symphony Orchestra at the Ocean conducted by Adam Flatt with multimedia artist Nicholas Bardonnay of Westwater Arts, perform a visual photochoreographic concert with images of Oregon’s Central Coast taken by local residents, displayed during the performance of Our Town by Aaron Copland. The concert closes with the exotic and thrilling Scheherazade by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsokov.
Maestro Flatt writes, “Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade is, for many, the gateway into fandom for orchestra music. The thrilling storytelling in music is matched with a virtual textbook of colorful orchestration. It is a showpiece for the symphony orchestra, and a thrilling challenge for every musician you see before you on stage.”
There will be a pre-concert talk with Maestro Flatt at 6:45pm, Saturday night only. Join the NSO musicians, guest artist, and conductor after the concert for a reception hosted by Flying Dutchman Winery.
