Former Principal Timpanist of the Pittsburgh Symphony and current Chair of the Percussion Department at the University of Georgia, Adams brings his eclectic and rich musical instincts to a subject so crucial to the understanding of our national identity. Scored for strings, percussion and narrator, this new work is destined to be a powerful statement to lead off our concert featuring renowned actor Harry Lennix. We then welcome young virtuoso saxophonist Steven banks to the Warner Theatre stage for the very first time, playing the rhapsodic Jaques Ibert. The evening will be capped by one of Beethoven’s most beloved symphonies, the Seventh. Dubbed the ‘apotheosis of the dance’ by Richard Wagner, Beethoven’s Seventh contrasts the powerful rhythmic profile of the outer movements with one of the most moving, poignant slow movements Beethoven ever wrote, all motivated by an unrelenting pulse that give s this work its reputation. Daniel Meyer-conductor. Steven Banks- saxophone. Harry Lennix- narrator. Prices vary depending on seats. www.eriephil.org
