Hocus Pocus: Magical Music (Plymouth)

March 10 @ 2:00 pm

Broomsticks. Bassoons. Bedlam! When this fun and fanciful score about a lazy apprentice and an enchanted-broomstick-gone-wild premiered in 1897, it catapulted the composer into overnight stardom. A few decades and several abracadabras later, the 1940 Disney film Fantasia made The Sorcerer’s Apprentice one of the most iconic pieces of orchestral music today.  Then, with another tap of the wand, we’re off on a wild ride to an icy planet that seems to somersault through space.  There, Holst unleashes all his orchestral tricks—trumpets, trombones, tubas, timpani, and those spell-binding strings —to show us the full power of the mighty Magician, Uranus. Yes, friends, there’s magic in the air. And watch very closely. Our Music Director has a few more musical tricks (and cards) up his tuxedo sleeve.
Prior to the concert at 3pm, the orchestra will hold its popular instrument demonstration beginning at 2 PM. Concert attendees are invited to meet the musicians, pick up an instrument, learn how to hold it, and find out what instrument family it belongs to. Pro-tip: The instrument demonstration is not just for kids!
