SCSO Performs Russian Masters Compositions

Jul 20, 2016

Russian Composers have created some of the most beautiful and powerful classical music compositions.  Some laid down the rules of compostition, while others smashed those rules.  Still others preserved Russia's history and folk stories in their pieces, or re-imagined medieval music.  A few even sought to define the music of the future.

We had  an awesome Live In Studio Session with Someday River.  The Orlando trio talked about their new EP Sleeping Sideways and their contribution to a new compilation album to benefit victims and families of the Pulse shootings in Orlando along with performing a great set.

SpaceX

SpaceX sent a cargo capsule to the International Space Station shortly after midnight on July 18th.  And they successfully landed the first-stage booster back on the tip of Cape Canaveral.  Rick Glasby tells us when SpaceX may reuse one of their recycled boosters in this video.

Beethoven's Choral Fantasy wasn't, as it might appear at first glance, a dry run for the Ninth Symphony. This is not to say that he mightn't have looked back at it sixteen years later when he was working on his groundbreaking final symphony, but he composed it as a grand finale for a gala concert of his most recent works -- a day when Beethoven would have been better off to stay in bed.

We'll follow the Fantasy with some musical hi-jinks from Haydn and Mozart, and then music from three composers whose nationalism did not always sit well with the authorities.

   The Sebastian Inlet Chapter of Surfrider Foundation seeks volunteers to help install native plant beds along the Lagoon shoreline at Ryckman Park. This will establish a fertlizer-free buffer, filter runoff, and restore habitat. Living Shorelines are a key to our IRL's future!

We are joined in this project by SeaDek, Melbourne Beach Garden Club, Maple Street Natives, Florida Native Plant Society, Brevard Environmentally Endangered Lands Program, the Brevard Indian River Lagoon Coalition and of course the wonderful Town of Melbourne Beach.
