Music in the Marly: The Florida Orchestra Brass Quintet
At the Museum, The Florida Orchestra Brass Quintet will play Bizet’s Carmen Suite, selections from Bartok’s Mikrokosmos and For Children and “The Miller’s Dance” from de Falla’s The Three-Cornered Hat, and Gustav Holst’s Second Military Suite in F and “The Girl with the Flaxen Hair” from Debussy’s Preludes, Book I.
The Quintet will turn to a rarely heard sixteenth-century composition “Rose Without a Thorn” from Henry VIII’s The King in Love and Grief and to more contemporary works by Duke Ellington and Kerry Turner. They will close the concert with The Johnson Rag.
All of these musicians have stellar academic credentials, having studied at the Curtis Institute of Music, Yale University, the University of South Florida, and Wheaton College. They have played with the Dallas, Houston, and San Francisco Symphonies, as well as the New World Symphony in Miami. Mr. Karr has even taught in Iraq and Afghanistan. These brass players are a Tampa Bay treasure.
The Marly Music Series begins another exciting season in June. Tickets are first-come, first-served and cost $20 for adults and $10 for students 22 and younger with current ID. Museum admission is included.
Marly Music Society members pay only $15 per concert. Please consider joining the group to support the series. You must be a Museum member to join. After each concert, the audience is invited to meet the musicians.
The Music committee, chaired by Dr. Richard Eliason and co-chaired by Demi Rahall, plans the series. Vicki Sofranko is the staff coordinator. Concerts are sponsored in part by the Estate of Mrs. Elvira Wolfe de Weil, and the Tampa Bay Times is the media sponsor. For more information, please call 727.896.2667.
