Broadcaster Press 8 June 9, 2015 www.broadcasteronline.com SIOUX CITY SYMPHONY ANNOUNCES 100TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON SIOUX CITY – The Sioux City Symphony Orchestra (SCSO) has announced its landmark 100th anniversary season for 2015-16. The SCSO gave its first public performance on Feb. 27, 1916. The 100th anniversary of this performance will be celebrated throughout the coming season with a wide array of special concerts and events. “The 100th year will be filled with magnificent celebrations and beautiful memories,” said Ryan Haskins, SCSO music director and conductor. “The audiences will experience unique concerts paired with a variety of extraordinary, groundbreaking moments.” Haskins is only the sixth person to hold the position of music director and conductor in the history of the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra. He will conduct all of the 2015-16 season concerts. Anniversary season highlights: •The opening night gala, Sept. 19, features an evening with Broadway star Audra McDonald, winner of six Tony Awards and two Grammy Awards. McDonald, who is one of the most honored performers of her generation, will present an evening of favorite American songs, from pop to standards, from Hollywood to Broadway. •The next concert, Oct. 17, will be a “once-in-a-lifetime” night for the SCSO. It will feature concertos performed on rare, historic instruments from the internationally renowned National Music Museum, Vermilion, S.D. The works are J.S. Bach’s Concerto for Harpischord in F minor BWV1056; Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks; Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto; and Glazunov’s Saxophone Concerto. A variety of unique instruments will be on display throughout the Orpheum Theatre, including the Kyai Rengga Manis Everist Gamelan, America’s largest Indonesian percussion orchestra consisting of more than 50 instruments. •On Nov. 14, the SCSO will partner with dance professionals from the hit TV shows Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance. This dance and symphony mashup will be an unforgettable night of stunning costumes, thrilling music and electrifying performances. Also performing will be a finalist from the long-running TV show, American Idol. •The annual Christmas Spectacular, this year on Dec. 12, will enchant the audience with Christmas carols, classic holiday favorites and the ever-popular singalongs. Special guests are Rick Darrow on the Mighty Wurlitzer organ and jolly old St. Nick. •There will be a one-of-akind concert Feb. 13 when the musicians of the SCSO will truly hold center stage. The supremely talented members of the orchestra will not only perform, but will select all the music and appear as presenters. At this time, the pieces they will select remain very much a mystery! •As spring approaches, on March 19 the symphony will stage A Musical Homecoming, a concert featuring some of the finest talent Siouxland has ever produced. Six exceptionally talented musicians will gather in Sioux City for just one night to perform their favorite personal selections. The guest artists are: Matthew Baker, double bass; Ben Baron, clarinet; Eric Grossman, violin; Ryan Kisor, trumpet; Stephanie March, cello; and Richard Steinbach, piano. Five of the artists are based in the United States; one is flying in from Spain. •The final program of the main season, on April 16, is “Ode to Joy,” a celebration of 100 years of musical excellence and community enrichment by the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra. Six choral groups will perform Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man and Lincoln Portrait, and Beethoven’s Symphony No.9. The Sioux City Symphony is proud to offer a special Add-On Concert to the regular seven concert season, May 14, which will break new ground in featuring two radically different types of music in a single night. Titled “Collide,” the evening will incorporate traditional classical music, Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto, performed by the world-renown violinist, Gil Shaham, with 21st-century club music delivered by Mercury Soul experience and created by composer/DJ Mason Bates. “Collide” may only be purchased at this time in conjunction with a season subscription.
