We're excited about the South Dakota Symphony performing in Madison next weekend and urge Lake County residents to take advantage of this great event.


The full orchestra -- 75 members -- will be on stage at the Dakota Prairie Playhouse on Feb. 20, and the music will be that of John Williams, a favorite composer of many. Williams is most famous for writing the musical score for hit movies such as "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "Star Wars" and many others.



The Playhouse has hosted great musical performances for many years, and this will certainly be among them. We often enjoy smaller groups, like Air Force ensembles from Offutt Air Force Base, or jazz legend Maynard Ferguson's band, but this will be the full symphony.

Symphony board member Scott Scofield of Wentworth was the driving force to bring the performance here, and a number of local businesses donated money to help offset expenses. We appreciate their support.

The concert is free, but seating is limited to 700. Tickets are available at Lewis Drug, Knology, DSU and East River. A suggested donation of $5 for adults and $3 for students age 12 and older will be divided to support the Lake County Food Pantry, Domestic Violence Network and Madison Area Arts Council.

Tickets will go fast, so we encourage patrons to get them as soon as possible. We're in for a real treat on Feb. 20.

Conductor Keith Lockhart and America's Orchestra, the famed Boston Pops, will present their first-ever Minor League Ballparks tour, visiting 10 cities stretching from Birmingham, Alabama, to Buffalo, New York, August 16-30.

Iconic singer-songwriter Kenny Loggins will join Mr. Lockhart and the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra for a tour program that features music inspired by three of this country's favorite pastimes-baseball, movies, and rock 'n' roll. The common thread throughout the program, entitled the Hollywood Hits Tour, will be legendary film music themes, featuring music from one of the most memorable baseball films of our time, The Natural, a tribute to renowned film composer John Williams, and Kenny Loggins singing "Footloose", from the ever-popular film of the same name.

"I can't think of a better marriage between the worlds of music and sports than that between America's Orchestra and America's favorite pastime," said Boston Pops Conductor Keith Lockhart. "With the legendary Kenny Loggins joining us for this 10-city tour of some of America's finest minor league stadiums, these concerts of great music from the worlds of baseball, movies, and rock 'n' roll are sure to bring audiences a once-in-a-lifetime experience that creates cherished memories and brings a wonderful new dimension to a summer at their favorite ball park."

"I'm extremely excited and proud to be performing with Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops for their first-ever tour of minor league baseball stadiums," said Kenny Loggins. "It is a true pleasure to work with such a prestigious and talented orchestra, and it's an absolute honor to perform for the wonderful people of these great American towns and cities we will be visiting."

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS
The Boston Pops Hollywood Hits Tour opens with the orchestra's popular arrangement of "The Star Spangled Banner," followed by several fan-favorite musical selections inspired by the world of baseball, including John Philip Sousa's rousing "National Game" March, "Casey at the Bat," with actor Jeremiah Kissel narrating, "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," and musical highlights from the classic baseball movie, The Natural. Keith Lockhart will bring the first portion of the program to a close with "A Cinematic Sing-Along," inviting the audience to join the orchestra by singing such Hollywood hits as "Moon River," "The Way We Were," "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head," and "Over the Rainbow." When Keith Lockhart and the orchestra return to the stage they will present a tribute to film score composer and Boston Pops Laureate Conductor John Williams, with performance of music from his most famous scores including Star Wars, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, and E.T. Recording artist Kenny Loggins brings the program to a close, joining Keith Lockhart and the orchestra for several of his greatest hits including "I'm Alright," from Caddyshack, and "Footloose," made famous as the theme song from the movie of the same name.

Inspired by a Boston Pops concert featuring Kenny Loggins at the Pawtucket Red Sox' McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, this past fall, the upcoming summer tour will be the first-ever Boston Pops tour of minor league baseball parks, though members of the Boston Pops have been featured in performances at many of the country's leading sporting events, including those of their hometown Red Sox, Patriots, and Celtics.

TOUR CITIES AND DATES
The tour kicks off with a performance at Durham Bulls Athletic Park in Durham, NC on Tuesday, August 16, before moving on to the Knights Stadium on Wednesday, August 17, in Fort Mill, SC. Then the Pops head deeper south stopping at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, GA, on Friday, August 19; Greer Stadium in Nashville, TN, on Saturday, August 20; AutoZone Park in Memphis, TN, on Sunday, August 21; and Regions Park in Birmingham, AL, on Tuesday, August 23. On the New York leg of the tour, the orchestra performs at Coca-Cola Field in Buffalo on Friday, August 26, and Frontier Field in Rochester on Saturday, August 27, and Alliance Bank Park in Syracuse on Sunday, August 28. Finally the Pops tour will hit Connecticut's New Britain Stadium in New Britain on Tuesday, August 30. Each of the ten performances will begin at 7:30 PM. Ticket information, including phone and web site addresses for purchasing tickets, appears below.

TICKET INFORMATION
Tickets for the Boston Pops Hollywood Hits tour go on sale February 28, 2011 and will be available through each venue's box office, website, and phones. Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning 2/23 through Citi's Private Pass Program. For complete presale details visit http://www.citiprivatepass.com.

Indiana Jones Music in Montreal

Damn, I missed this! 12 nights of live Indy music last month in Montreal! June 6 - June 17 at McGill University. *1* block away from my house!

L’Orchestre à vent de musique de film (OVMF)
The Wind Orchestra of Film Music (WOFM)

http://montreal.kijiji.ca/c-communit...AdIdZ288472051
Quote:
This season, we proudly present to you music from the Indiana Jones series, composed by none other than John Williams. The majority of the pieces we will interpret has never before been performed before a live audience - a world premiere not to be missed! From the depths of the Pankot Palace (The Mine Car Chase) to the canals of Venice (Escape from Venice), via Austria (Scherzo for Motorcycle and Orchestra), India and North Africa (Desert Chase, etc.) l'OVMF brings to you its most colorful programme yet!

So Indiana Jones enthusiasts, musicians and film buffs alike come and join us for this unique and spectacular performance!

Visit www.ovmf.qc.ca for more information and ticket reservations.
Translated from French...A review from: http://www.pieuvre.ca/2011/06/18/ovmf-indiana-jones/

"Put on a Stetson Fedora .... The Wind Orchestra of Film Music (OVMF) returned to the stage of Pollack Hall at McGill University on Friday night for the second performance of their concert on the classic film series Indiana Jones. The fifty musicians were in great shape, and the head, Jocelyn Leblanc, upheld the challenge with gusto as always, in what could be regarded as a tribute to composer John Williams. Escapes, archaeological finds and fights with the Nazis were on the agenda of this good shot of OVMF.

Picking up pieces rearranged from the trilogy of films - and even the fourth, that many fans of the series would love to continue to ignore, the OVMF musicians with the conductor in the lead, seemed perfectly in control, on Friday, linking the air with flexibility and finesse. Many tunes also revived the memory of specific passages of the three films - or rather four, let's be clear, whether the pursuit of Marion in the streets of Algiers, in Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones' visit to the Nazi Castle in The Last Crusade, or the terrifying traveling cart in the mines of Temple of Doom.

Hats off, in fact, to the whole orchestra for the final interpretation of the song for the end credits of The Last Crusade, an also very well known theme from Indiana Jones, this piece is probably the quintessential music of the series and, by extension, the films themselves. Sweet and lively, boisterous and finally, the air of this piece is, in fact, the temperament of the hero, period. Unlike Luke Skywalker, who tends to be the absolute good, Harrison Ford, Indiana Jones, is more colourful, with his flaws he succeeds (sometimes) in transforming the advantages, and it is this ability that makes it all appealing. Without music, however, Indy would be very little."

To celebrate the 80th anniversary of the world-renowned Abbey Road Studios, American Express have organised the inaugural ‘Symphony at the Park’ event this weekend (from 5pm daily). The picturesque surroundings of West London’s Chiswick House and Gardens play host to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra who perform both new and classic rock, pop and epic film scores. Divided into 2 themed days, Saturday offers full symphonic versions of timeless rock and pop anthems from The Beatles, Elgar, Radiohead, Oasis, Kate Bush, Queen, Elbow, The Hollies, Radiohead and more. Sunday, in contrast, is movie day with a number of iconic film scores belted out for all and sundry, including John Williams classics from the ‘Star Wars’ saga, ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ and the memorable use of Richard Strauss in ’2001: A Space Odyssey’.

Symphony at the Park: Classic Abbey Road Film Scores



Quote:
Cine-Vue were honoured to be invited as guests of American Express to the very first Symphony at the Park event this Sunday at London's Chiswick House and Gardens, celebrating 80 years of Abbey Road Studios. Whilst the Saturday drew an army of over 1000 music lovers, all eagerly awaiting live renditions of classic tracks recorded at Abbey Road (from bands such as The Beatles, Radiohead and Elbow), we were there for Sunday's evening of classic film scores, performed live by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

The picturesque gardens of Chiswick House proved the perfect setting for an evening of rousing film scores, sumptuous hog roast rolls and enough champagne to satisfy even the thirstiest of Etonians. The show began with a rendition of the main theme from Disney animation Return to Neverland (2002), originally composed by the evening's conductor Joel McNeely. It wasn't long before the vocal talents of the Crouch End Festival Chorus made their mark, coming in to superb effect during Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Dies Irae, taken from the soundtrack to the multiple Oscar-winning biopic Amadeus (1984).

The highlight of the first half - for younger members of the audience at least - was the introduction of a Harry Potter medley, moving from John Williams' iconic main theme through to Alexandre Desplat's melancholic Obliviate, as featured in the franchise's final cataclysmic entries, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 & 2.

A strong first half was further augmented by the arrival of extracts from Howard Shore's Lord of the Rings score, Andrew Lloyd Webber's iconic soundtrack to The Phantom of the Opera (2004) and Alex North's unused original composition for Stanley Kubrick's operatic masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) - perhaps the most famous film score that never was.

Not to be outdone, the second half flew out of the traps with themes from Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979), James Cameron's Aliens (1986) and U.S. composer Danny Elfman's work on the pre-Nolan Batman feature films. Even a late power outage (quickly and efficiently handled by the event's organisers) couldn't dampen spirits following the arrival of John William's unmistakable theme from Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), with hugely popular pieces taken from both Braveheart (1995) and Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace (1999) rightly chosen to end the evening with a bang.

A fantastic advert not just for the prolific output of Abbey Road Studios but for the timeless public appeal of classic film scores, here's hoping Symphony at the Park returns next year to toast Abbey's 81st.

Nah; the prices were outrageous! £45?!
Bear in mind for the last few years the London Symphony Orchestra have been doing free concerts of film music at Canary Wharf! And yep, they did do Raiders a couple of years back (including members who played on the original recording) but Star Wars usually wins out. This year they're just doing King's Speech music for some reason.

Ouch!

It looked like it was free in the park...that's a shame.

The Bad Boy Of The Organ

The Glittering Virtuoso

Quote:
Cameron Carpenter is not like other humans. Even from an ocean away—the organist and composer is based in Berlin, and our interview took place via Skype—Carpenter’s presence feels somehow heavier, more charged than others. He listens intently to questions asked of him, picking up their nuances and inferences like an antenna. He hand-selects his answers with care, holding each word up to the light to be sure of its merit, crafting sentences like anthems to be deployed with precision and force.

Cameron Carpenter melds flashy showmanship with dizzying talent and ingenuity, permanently altering the pipe organ’s status in orchestras and in popular culture.

Having heard the catchphrase “the bad boy of the organ” tossed in his direction—conjuring a mental image reinforced by press photos of the musician looking moody in leather, with a dash of feathers and crystals, before a backdrop of tragically beautiful urban decay—one might expect a too-cool hipster.



He’s not. The artist I met via video was serious, thoughtful, and profoundly unhip—and deeply invested in every facet of the sound he creates.

As a kid, Carpenter learned to play both the piano and the organ at the same time, performing Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier at the age of 11. In his high school years at the North Carolina School of the Arts, Carpenter forwent any chance at popularity for other pursuits like learning to play the complete works of Bach and Schumann on the organ.

“When I was 15 and most of my friends were smoking some pot and going to dances and having social lives—which I most decidedly did not—I was sitting in the library 12 to 14 hours a day, transcribing Mahler’s 5th Symphony,” Carpenter recalled.

An adolescence largely spent in the company of dead composers, while by no means a carefree or even enjoyable one, proved essential to Carpenter’s career as a composer.

“I learned things from transcribing Mahler that I could not have learned any other way,” he said. “But this isn’t surprising when you consider that for many centuries, a sort of de facto part of studying to be a composer was copying out the music of other composers.”

To date, Carpenter has transcribed more than 250 works for the organ—at least 100 of which are major symphonic works, among them Schumann, Wagner, and Debussy. His original works are regularly played by major orchestras—with his accompaniment on the organ. The Julliard alumnus was also the first organist to be nominated for a Grammy for his solo album Revolutionary, released in 2008. His first major composition for organ and orchestra, Der Skandal, was commissioned by the Cologne Philharmonie.

Der Skandal represented “my first major statement about how I feel about the combination of the organ and orchestra, and how excited I am about its previous underutilization and what an open frontier that has left me,” Carpenter said.

The pipe organ’s dusty, unused condition in the churches and concert halls of the 21st century is a source of inspiration—almost glee—to Carpenter, as if he can’t believe no one else has thought to tackle the instrument in the radical way he does.

Then he said this very bizarre thing: “It’s funny, because the thing that I always vehemently espouse is that the organ doesn’t exist.”

Whether the statement came from a truly philosophical place or was merely a bit of outlandish verbiage was unclear, until he amended, “It doesn’t exist in the sense that it’s only a medium. It’s no more than the paint in the tube, and the painting that is painted is the issue at hand … we can’t criticize the organ for being boring. Only an organist is boring. There are no boring organs.”

Certainly, most people can think of no other organist who performs Chopin’s Revolutionary Etude entirely with his sequined feet, followed—with equal intensity—by the theme from Raiders of the Lost Ark.



Actually, most people can think of no other living organist at all, and that’s what makes Carpenter so special. He’s alive, and suddenly, so is his instrument.

‘There are no boring organs’

Cameron Carpenter performs at Cal Poly’s Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, Oct. 4, at 7:30 p.m. Visit pacslo.org or call 756-ARTS.

For decades, he lamented, the pipe organ has been the realm of specialists, and the pipe organ recital not much more than a cozy get-together for other organists. But if these pleasant, exclusive exercises in pipe organ preservation mean forgoing any cultural, artistic, or commercial impact for his instrument, Carpenter could do without them.

“It’s not my job to save the organ,” he emphasized. “Although I have a feeling that that’s exactly what will happen, because it will be saved from itself.”

The musician was referring not just to his own power to save the instrument from antiquity—he frequently fills concert halls in Europe and the United States, which is practically unheard of for a solo organist—but also to his controversial plans to digitize the organ.

While other traveling musicians spend years developing a relationship with their instrument, Carpenter is forced to become intimate with a new pipe organ for every performance. He calls it a one-night stand.

“All of the instantly relatable anecdotes, of course, apply,” he said. “We, of course, experience a certain mad rush of unprepared coitus, a pleasurable chafing of some kind, followed by a kind of wrestling to the ground of the difficulties, followed, of course, by a kind of embarrassment and shame, and a wish to get the hell away from each other.”

His plans to make the organ portable have drawn some criticism from purists, points for which a weary Carpenter has little patience. He stressed repeatedly that performing is a great honor, but added, “I want to do justice to that honor by doing it as well as I can”—something he can’t do without revolutionizing his instrument.

“If you were to go to [violinists] Ray Chen or Gidon Kremer or Nigel Kennedy, and say, ‘Here, you’re about to play for 3,000 people—oh, here’s a new violin! Go on and play it.’”

He extended a pink highlighter toward the screen in mock earnest.

“‘And give us your best. Give us all that is within you. And teach us about the music and make it live for us!’”

He dropped the highlighter and the mock earnestness.

“They would cancel the concert.”

Such conditions are commonplace for Carpenter, whose glittering style and impossibly nimble limbs will—on Tuesday, Oct. 4—make the frenzied acquaintance of the Performing Arts Center’s Forbes Pipe Organ.

If this organist has his way, however, these rosy days of performing on such regal, antiquated, temperamental creatures—which can go out of tune, I learned, with an atmospheric temperature change of two degrees—will be a figment of the past. But let us enjoy their lingering glow.

You're Welcome

John Williams: Maestro of the Movies
Two nights at the Hollywood Bowl this labor day weekend. Here's a glimpse of the program:



And from the mailbag:
Quote:
It's the day after experiencing John Williams at the Hollywood Bowl. Have to say that was a night to remember. Walking in to the venue i noticed families, fans, and people who appreciate John Williams music by wearing shirts from all his movies. Some even dressed up like Indy himself. The first half of the night he played beautiful pieces from his other works, tributes to Hollywood, and a special set with Seth Mcfarlane from Family Guy & Ted.
The second half was all for the fans. Playing superman, starwars, and ET. go course the best was the Indiana Jones music and folks applaud in approval. Oh the magic that played in the air that night. For any Indy fans who have not been to one. You need to go! Just saying. Love the podcast keep up the great work and be well.

Apparently this is an annual event, in 2013 Julie Andrews was the guest. He changed it up last year with an introduction and a non-transitional ending to Flight from Peru. I guess Lucasfilm provided a music-free track for the LA Philharmonic to play over?

Saturday night with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, John Williams plugged Indy 5.
Quote:
Williams told the Tanglewood crowd on Saturday that George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford are plotting a fifth installment in the "Indiana Jones" franchise for 2020.

The 85-year-old composer said he was hopeful he would be on hand to write the score, a remark that drew cheers from the throng of 18,000 that packed the Koussevitzky Music Shed and filled the Lenox lawn.

Williams' comments came between performances by the Boston Pops of The Adventures of Mutt from "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" and Parade of the Slave Children from "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom."

I have tickets to see him play at the Hollywood Bowl on Sept 1st! So exciting I'll get to see him conduct in my lifetime! Hopefully he'll play some Indiana Jones melodies(which he didn't last year to the disappointment of several!).
