This Saturday, May 8th marks the end of another hugely successful Panama City POPS Orchestra 2009/2010 season. The final concert of this season is named Enchanting Escapes, and you definitely won’t want to miss this spectacular musical performance!
Enchanting Escapes will feature an evening of stunning music with the usual classical/contemporary blend that the Panama City POPS Orchestra is famous for. “An American in Paris” by George Gershwin, (American composer/pianist 1898-1937) and “Mars – Bringer of War” by Holst (English composer 1874-1934) are just two of the offerings on the concert’s schedule. In addition, concert-goers will enjoy an encore performance by soloist Christine Mari Yoshikawa. Ms. Yoshikawa will perform the first movement of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s “Piano Concert Number One.” The piece was written by the Russian composer in 1892 at the age of 19, and was modeled after Norwegian Edvard Grieg’s Piano Concerto, a favorite work of the composer. Dr. Yoshikawa has performed with some of the world’s finest musicians, and will grace the stage with her lyricism, elegance and warmth. After receiving a resounding ovation for her highly acclaimed appearance at last year’s final POPS concert on May 2, The Panama City POPS is honored to once again host this international sensation.
Enchanting Escapes by the Panama City POPS Orchestra will be held this Saturday, May 8th at the Arnold High School Auditorium in Panama City Beach. Show begins at 7:30 pm. For tickets and information, please visit the official POPS website or call (850) 785 7677.
