MacPhail Spotlight Series: Music in the Wild
May 6, 2017 @ 8:00 pm
Inspired by our fauna, this program features composers imitating racing horses, stomping elephants, braying donkeys, fluttering birds, crawling turtles, and much more. Pieces include the ethereal “Lark Ascending” by Vaughan Williams, MacPhail composer Sarah Miller’s “Carnival of the Invasive Species”, a number of contemporary Bluegrass tunes inspired by Midwestern landscapes, plus the iconic “Carnival of the Animals” by Saint-Saens.
We’ll be joined by a mystery guest who will narrate the “Carnival of the Animals.”
