CLASSY NOTES: Flamenco and the Lone Ranger
JACKSON HOLE, WYO – This week’s GTMF Wednesday Spotlight Concert features San Antonio’s Entreflamenco Company. Originating in Southern Spain, Flamenco dance is so-called after the dance movement of the courting flamingo bird. The award-winning Entreflamenco Company is sure to impress with cante (singing), toque (guitar playing), baile (dance) and palmas (handclaps), and the sizzling passion of a perfectly delivered dance performance.
Thursday’s Musician Choice concert will feature Maurice Ravel’s beautifully modernist Sonata for violin and cello, absolutely gorgeous and creative in character, and a must-see for the stringed instrument fan. Chopin’s Trio for violin, cello and piano will wrap up the evening, keeping things pretty and polite, of course.
This weekend’s GTMF Orchestra concert will ring familiar in even the most casual of classical listener’s ear, as Rossini’s famous William Tell Overture will headline the evening of Schumann and Haydn. The William Tell Overture is an orchestral work of Olympian demands, and the GTMF orchestra is just the card to play this hand of musical virtuosity.
Tuesday’s (August 6th) Inside The Music is titled “Musica Clasica Latina? Mucho Gusto!” Roger Oyster, in his ever-charismatic and brilliantly educational and accessible style, will lead audiences in a journey through Latin music, with selections from composers Isaac Albeniz to Leonard Berstein’s West Side Story.
Don’t forget about Locals Rush! With an Idaho or Wyoming I.D., you’ll get into any concert for $15 at the 30 minute mark prior to any show. And new this year, Walk Festival Hall is allowing beverages inside the concert hall, which means you don’t have to chug that glass of wine during intermission! Order two!
