Shoreline Symphony Presents “Music Inspired by Art”
The Shoreline Symphony will present a performance entitled “Music Inspired by Art” on Sunday, June 12, 2016, at 4:00 p.m., in the Overbrook Theater at Muskegon Community College, 221 Quarterline Rd., Muskegon, MI.
The performance is free of charge.
The concert program includes symphonic music inspired by paintings, including:
- Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition
- Sergei Rachmaninov’s Isle of the Dead
- Two movements from Ottorino Respighi’s Three Botticelli Pictures (“Spring” and
“The Birth of Venus”)
While the symphony plays, images of the paintings will be projected onto a large screen behind the players. Before each piece is played, conductor Annette Jurcevic will describe how the paintings – and the artists themselves – inspired the composers to write music.
One additional piece, Artist’s Life Waltz by Johann Strauss, will be presented as “art inspired by music”. In 2005 Russian artist Vladimir Pervuninsky painted “A Ball to the Sounds of Strauss” after being inspired by Strauss’ composition and the era of Viennese dance.
Established in September 2012, the Shoreline Symphony Community Orchestra is celebrating its third season of creating quality classical music for Muskegon area audiences. Led by founding director Annette Jurcevic, the Shoreline Symphony Community Orchestra brings together professional and amateur musicians who play alongside students and faculty from several area colleges and universities. It is the only all-volunteer orchestra in the Muskegon area to include woodwinds, brass, percussion, and strings.
