  • Colin Jacobsen/Siamak Aghaei  Ascending Bird
  • Felix Mendelssohn  A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Semi-Staged)

This concert opens with the intoxicating, whirling Ascending Bird, co-written by American composer Colin Jacobsen and Persian composer Siamak Aghaei. It is based on an ancient Persian parable of spiritual transcendence.

The mischief, mythical fairies and innocent lovers that Shakespeare brought to life in his A Midsummer Night’s Dream are magically portrayed through Mendelssohn’s “incidental” music. You’ll recognize the “Overture,” “Nocturne” and of course, the “Wedding March.” We’re offering a semi-staged version, complete with props, lighting, costumes and actors.

Famous Love Stories: Porgy & Bess and Romeo & Juliet @ Victory Theatre

Evansville Philharmonic Chorus
Roger Kalia, Conductor

  • Sergei Prokofiev Selections from Romeo & Juliet, Suites 1 & 2
  • George Gershwin  Porgy & Bess: A Concert of Songs

Experience two legendary and powerful love stories in one incredible night! Prokofiev’s electrifying and luscious music from Romeo & Juliet fuses with Gershwin’s poignant and quintessentially American Porgy & Bess to create an evening of sweeping emotion and drama.

Hear blues, jazz, spirituals, and classical music, in two radically different works that were surprisingly written in the same year!

Joined by the Evansville Philharmonic Chorus, our wonderful singers, Angela Brown and Reginald Smith, Jr. sing Gershwin’s classics like “Summertime” and “I Got Plenty of Nuttin’,” while Prokofiev’s “Balcony Scene” will move you to tears and “Death of Tybalt” will leave you speechless.
