Resonance Ensemble presents “Song and Dance” on Sunday 18th April 2021, 3.00 p.m. at Rangiora Town Hall, 303 High Street, Rangiora 7400
Conductor: Helen Renaud
Join us on a trip through time as we explore the influence of songs and dances on composers of orchestral music.
Come along and enjoy well-known 20th century works, including Astor Piazzolla’s haunting slow tango Oblivion, arranged for strings, the lively Romanian Dances by Bela Bartok and Malcolm Arnold’s English Dances (set II) for wind ensemble.
Travel back to the 17th century as our brass quintet plays a selection of 5 dances from the Terpsichore collection written by German composer Michael Praetorius.
Listen as the orchestra divides into smaller chamber groups and then comes together to perform Mozart’s famous Symphony No. 40 in G minor.
Pricing: Adults $20/$15; Child $5
