PRLog - Oct. 21, 2012 - SARASOTA, Fla. -- What is better than listening to a 50 piece professional concert band playing adventurous, stimulating and entertaining music? Going on a scavenger hunt through downtown galleries looking for the artwork that “matches” each musical selection!
The Sarasota Concert Band opens its 2012 – 2013 season series (The Magic of Music and the Arts) with “The Magic of Music and ART” at the Glenridge Performing Arts Center on November 17th at 8 pm. Each musical selection has been paired with a piece of artwork in one of five downtown art galleries: Art Uptown Gallery (1367 Main St.), Dabbert Gallery (76 Palm Ave.), Galleria Silecchia (20 Palm Ave.) Hodgell Gallery (46 Palm Ave.) and Stakenborg Fine Art (1545 Main St.).
Audiences will individually visit these locations, searching for the visual art to match the musical art. They’ll get their “Art Tour Contest” card filled with the correct answers and bring it with them to the Band’s performance for a chance to win a prize! It could be a “Night On The Town”, a “Dinner for Two” or a “Day At The Spa”!
People will enjoy finding artwork that matches the musical selections on the program such as “Scenes From the Louvre” (Dello Joio), “Hymn to Red October” (Poledouris)
“Audiences love concert band music because it’s invigorating, energizing and refreshing”, says William Barbanera, Artistic Director. “It’s classical, sing-able and even jazzy. There’s something for everyone so they leave feeling great about life.” Music and Art join together on Saturday, November 17th, at the Glenridge Performing Arts Center, 7333 Scotland Way, in Sarasota. The concert starts at 8 pm. The cost is $15 with reserved seating. Tickets are available at the door and online at https://app.ticketturtle.com/
