Series III: Art|Music

  • V. Sue Clevland High School 4800 Laban Road Northeast Rio Rancho, NM, 87144 United States (map)

The ABQ|Philharmonic under the baton of Byron Herrington present their annual Art|Music Concert. Students have listened to the music in class, and then created artwork based on images or feelings inspired by the music, from a variety of mediums, including acrylics, pastels, oils, photography, 3D, pottery and more. The artwork is projected above the orchestra as well as on display in the lobby at both venues. The evening begins with the stunning overture from Richard Wagner's opera Der Fliegend Hollander (The Flying Dutchman).  We will continue the evening with music from beloved film composer Max Steiner with his suite from the classic film "Casablanca."  Next is Benjamin Britten’s “Peter Grimes: Four Sea Interludes,” and we conclude the evening with two rarely performed pieces, “La Boutique Fantasque Suite” by Ottorino Respighi, and “Háry János Suite,” Op. 15 by Zoltán Kodály.
