RSO Classics: The Genius of John Williams ::

RSO Classics: The Genius of John Williams Date: Saturday January 10, 2015
Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Tickets

The RSO pays tribute to one of America’s greatest composers – and certainly one of the greatest composers of film music ever! Over his six-decade career, Williams has scared the wits out of us (Jaws; Jurassic Park), made us weep (Schindler’s List; Saving Private Ryan), swashed our buckles (Indiana Jones), brought out the child in us (E.T.; Harry Potter) and made us all science fiction fans (Star Wars), all through the magical sounds of the symphony orchestra.

Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, this oddball romantic comedy - considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy - soars with the spirit of Broadway as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters who have become legends in the canon: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight “mission doll,” out to reform the evildoers of Times Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she’s been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiancé, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating craps game.

RSO Classics: Memories from Times of War featuring Amy Conn ::

RSO Classics: Memories from Times of War featuring Amy Conn Date: Saturday February 14, 2015
Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Tickets

 The Good Soldier Schweik is a satirical Czech anti-War novel recounting the adventures of a hapless soldier in World War I, who Czechs adopted as their national personification. Czech/American composer Kurka wrote a darkly comic opera on Schweik, using a jazzy orchestra of only winds, brass and percussion.   Acclaimed soprano Amy Conn makes her RSO debut in three contrasting works. John Philip Sousa wrote a simple but moving setting of J.D. McRae’s famous poem, “In Flanders Fields the Poppies Grow”, honoring the thousands of anonymous war victims buried there. Barber’s dramatic setting of text by William Agee hearkens back to a rural America as yet unscarred by World Wars. Glière’s unusual concerto, written shortly after World War II, offers a dazzling display of the coloratura voice. Ravel ostensibly wrote his Tombeau as a tribute to baroque composer François Couperin, but dedicated its movements to friends who had died in World War I.

Renowned foodist and television personality Alton Brown today announced the return of Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour, on the heels of the successful inaugural run to 46 US cities.  Over 100,000 tickets were sold for the Food Network star’s show, featuring a pinch of comedy, talk show antics, a multimedia lecture, live music (he sings!) and a dash of "extreme" food experimentation (ponchos are provided for those in the first few rows), and of course...puppets.  Enthusiastic fans and critics have raved about the interactive component where Brown invites audience members on stage to serve as his assistant. 

Brown will bring Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour to Rockford’s CoronadoPerformingArtsCenter on Sunday, February 15, 2015. Tickets are on sale June 6 at 10AM and are available at the Coronado Performing Arts Center Box Office, Coronadopac.org, and Ticketmaster.com.

“We have combined science, music, food, and a few other things no one in his right mind would allow me to do on TV, into a two hour extravaganza that’s fun for the whole family,” says Brown.  He has been cultivating the show’s material for about a decade and wrote most of the musical numbers which all take a comedic look at food.

Brown, author of seven books including the James Beard award winning “I’m Just Here for the Food” and New York Times bestselling sequence “Good Eats,” has hosted numerous food series including “Iron Chef America.”  He currently serves as host on the game show “Cutthroat Kitchen” and as a mentor/judge on “Food Network Star,” which premiers its 10th season on June 1st.  Brown created, produced and hosted the Peabody award winning series “Good Eats” for 13 years on Food Network, which still can be seen on the Cooking Channel.

RSO Classics: An American Salute ::

RSO Classics: An American Salute Date: Saturday March 28, 2015
Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Tickets

Gould’s famous American Salute, an electrifying set of variations on the Civil War tune, “When Johnny Comes Marching Home,” leads to a touching remembrance of Americans, whether Union or Confederate, who lost their lives in the Civil War. A commission by the Philadelphia Orchestra produced a rare partnership of two young composers who created this work in 2003. Copland’s final symphony, premiered in 1946, captures in sound the confidence of the World’s undisputed superpower, post-war America, building a thrilling climax from Copland’s own “Fanfare for the Common Man.”
