The Salt Spring Concert Band presents Beyond Words an evening of music drawn from fiction, poetry and prose on May 5 at ArtSpring. The program is drawn from such great works as Moby Dick, Les Miserables, and Shakespeare’s As You Like It. The evening will also include evocative music from The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, The Curse of Capistrano (Zorro), and the classic tale, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. This concert will be extra special as it celebrates Music Director Dawn Hage’s final concert with the band after 18 seasons of musical leadership on Salt Spring.
Audience members will have a full sensory experience, with story and poetry readings and epic and eclectic musical interpretations of the tales, enhanced with special visual and lighting effects. In addition, Dawn Hage will share some personal memories and highlights of her many seasons with this wonderful community band. The music is spectacular and dramatic, transporting listeners to places beyond words as the stories and poems find life through orchestration and sound.
Beyond Words promises to be a marvellous musical experience.
