THE+ANIMATED+ORCHESTRA+-+POSTPONED+DUE+TO+HURRICANE

Sarasota Orchestra

Gregory Smith - narrator

The Animated Orchestra is an interactive and engaging piece for family and educational concerts.

In the story, the orchestra is supposed to perform the score to a cartoon, but the film of the cartoon was sent to the wrong address! To salvage the concert, the narrator describes the scenes and the orchestra plays the music as the audience imagines the missing cartoon.

The never seen hero of the cartoon is a playful and curious ferret named Ari. The audience is frequently called upon to provide Ari’s characteristic ferret sound: “dook-dook-dook-dook”. The setting for the cartoon is an instrument repair shop owned and operated by a sleepy, older gentleman who lives above the shop.

Ari sneaks into the shop late one night and discovers that an instrument repair shop is a ferret paradise, full of interesting instruments to explore. The story moves into the concert hall as the audience, orchestra, and conductor literally act out the cartoon's climactic scene, including an unforgettable “orchestra wave,” followed by an always popular “audience wave.”

Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

The Indigo Girls return to Atlanta Symphony Hall for a two night performance with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra on December 30 and 31. Tickets are on sale now.

“When I hear the symphony come in, it’s a convergence of a lot of feelings,” says Emily Saliers, one-half of the iconic Indigo Girls. “First, you can’t believe your good fortune that it’s really happening, and then you’re hit with the power of this enormous, full orchestra coming from behind you. Even when we play by ourselves now, I can’t perform these songs without hearing the orchestra in my head.”

In 2012, Saliers and her Indigo Girls partner Amy Ray embarked on a bold new chapter, collaborating with a pair of orchestrators to prepare larger-than-life arrangements of their songs to perform with symphonies around the country. It was a challenging endeavor, to say the least, but the GRAMMY-winning duo managed to find that elusive sonic sweet spot with the project, creating a seamless blend of folk, rock, pop, and classical that elevated their songs to new emotional heights without sacrificing any of the emotional intimacy and honesty that have defined their music for decades.

Alabama Symphony Orchestra

Grab your bell bottoms and come out to the Orioles’ Ed Smith Stadium for a night of music from a time when “catch you on the flip side” referred to vinyl records. Sarasota Orchestra backs the powerful vocals of Nashville-based duo Swearingen & Kelli, who faithfully recreate the magic of '70s singer-songwriters such as James Taylor, Carole King, Neil Diamond, Joni Mitchell, and more. Get yourself some ballpark fare, kick back in the stands, and enjoy the Orchestra performing from the field. A spectacular fireworks display closes out an evening of hits and home runs.

Gregory Smith - narrator

Join the Tucson Symphony Orchestra with returning guest conductor Chris Confessore for Young People’s Concerts. This year’s program features The Melodic Life composed and performed by Gregory Smith. It employs a “follow that melody” approach that traces the life of a lighthearted melody named Bob from early childhood to middle age. Stops are made at a variety of life events including going to school, playing sports and job experiences, such as being in a circus and a Broadway show. The Melodic Life hones the listening skills of the audience while fostering a deeper appreciation for melodic use and development. The proverbial message “variety is the spice of life” will ring in the listeners’ ears as well as their hearts.
