Auburn Symphony Orchestra Presents: From Marimba to Mozart

April 7, 2:30 - 4pm

Photo By Scott Quade Composers find inspiration in everything – their nationality, historical events and, of course, other genres of music. With his Symphony No. 38, Wolfgang Mozart wrote a love letter to the city of Prague. The music crackles with virtuosity and grace, signaling that Mozart is at the peak of his compositional powers.

Auburn Symphony Orchestra welcomes percussionist Garrett Arney to the stage to perform Emmanuel Séjourné’s Concerto for Marimba and Strings, an eclectic piece that will leave the audience breathless. The concert opens with Jessie Montgomery’s Banner, commissioned in 2014 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of The Star-Spangled Banner. She weaves together snippets of the anthem with civil rights songs and other cultural melodies. Inspiration is everywhere, especially in the concert hall!

The concert takes place at the Auburn Performing Arts Center (702 4th Street NE). Head to the Performing Arts Center an hour early at 1:30pm to hear an enlightening discussion about the music between Music Director Wesley Schulz and Visiting Artist Garrett Arney.
