Friday, August 16, 2013
Maestro David Stewart Wiley, conductor of the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra, at the grand piano, and a trio of versatile musicians will perform “Bach to the Future: The Classical Connection to Cool Popular Music” on Aug. 23 at Resurrection Catholic Church in Moneta. The program, presented by Smith Mountain Arts Council, will be held from 7 until 9 p.m.
Flutist Julee Hickcox, drummer Al Wojtera and bassist John Smith will join Wiley in a program of baroque, classical, jazz, rock and pop favorites to explore the connection between these art forms. An example is Claude Bolling’s jazz suite, which includes a tune fusing the same harmonic key progression as Billy Joel’s “Piano Man,” J.S. Bach and Procol Harum’s “Whiter Shade of Pale.”
Tickets, available at RadioShack, The General Store and Smith Mountain Lake Visitor Center, are $17 for SMAC members and $20 for non-members. Tickets also can be purchased by sending a check and self-addressed, stamped envelope to: SMAC, P.O. Box 70, Moneta, VA 24121.
