The Amarillo Symphony presents its Reimaginings concerts Fri., Feb. 21, and Sat., Feb. 22, 8:00 p.m. at the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts.
Music director and conductor Jacomo Rafael Bairos presents a refreshing musical experience with renowned guest artist PROJECT Trio. A passionate, high-energy chamber music ensemble comprising three virtuosic composers/performers from Brooklyn, New York, PROJECT Trio blends their classical training with an eclectic taste in musical styles. Comprised of a double bass, flute and cello, PROJECT Trio makes an impact on audiences of all ages and joins the orchestra for a unique interpretation of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf and Rossini’s William Tell Overture, among others. This concert repertoire also features a classic and beloved Bernstein work – the rhapsodic West Side Story: Symphonic Dances.
“Reimaginings reflects Jacomo Rafael Barios’ enthusiastic vision for the future of the Amarillo Symphony as we seek to blend cutting edge music with our favorite classical works,” said Susan White, executive director of the Amarillo Symphony. “We are very excited to present Reimaginings as we believe it delivers an experience for seasoned concertgoers and newcomers alike.”
