CELEBRATIONS OLD & NEW CONCERT
Carson City Symphony
with guest soloist Brian Landrus

Sunday, February 26, 2017
4:00 PM
Bob Boldrick Theater
Carson City Community Center
851 E. William Street
Carson City, NV
Tickets are $15 general admission;
$12 for seniors, students, and Symphony Association members; and free for youth age 18 and under.

The concert features guest composer/soloist Brian Landrus in his original compositions, Jeru Concerto for Baritone Saxophone and Orchestra and Arrow in the Night.  The program also includes A Festival Prelude by Alfred Reed, Symphony No. 5 ("Reformation") by Mendelssohn, and Carmen Suite No. 1 by Bizet.  Pre-show entertainment by members of STRAZZ, the Symphony's youth strings, begins at 3:00 p.m. in the lobby.

A Meet-the-Soloist concert preview begins at 3:15 p.m. in the Sierra Room.  Conductor David Bugli and soloist Brian Landrus will discuss Landrus' early years and influences in the Reno area, the use of saxophone in orchestra, jazz elements in classical music, differences in style between jazz and classical music, and other topics related to the program.  Because the concert is on the 100th anniversary of the first audio recording of a jazz work, a bit of history about the significance of recording on the development of jazz will be included.  The preview will end with questions from the audience.  The preconcert talk is funded in part by Nevada Humanities, Nevada's nonprofit state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Landrus, an outstanding nationally recognized artist, was born and raised in Nevada and earned his Bachelor's Degree at UNR.  He went on to earn degrees in jazz composition and jazz saxophone from the New England Conservatory.  He has toured the world with jazz superstars, founded a recording label to release his original music, and has received widespread recognition and awards.

Get tickets at the Carson City Visitors Bureau (716 N. Carson Street), online at CCSymphony.com, or at the door.  Donors at United Blood Services' Carson City Donor Center from Saturday, February 18, through Saturday, February 25, may receive a complimentary ticket to the concert.  Call 775-887-9111 for Donor Center hours.

This concert is supported in part with public funding through the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.  For information, see CCSymphony.com or call 775-883-4154.
