About our Guest Artists
So if you didn’t see Dame Evelyn Glennie on opening night—who, by the way, is one of the best percussionists in the world—and if you didn’t see/hear with the symphony, you’re really out of excuses now, aren’t you? Because the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra is performing with Windborne Music to put on The Music of Queen.Yes, “Bohemian Rhapsody.”We Are the Champions.”Why don’t you do yourself a favor and come to the Orpheum and find out for yourself that the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra is “Somebody to Love.”
Maybe you’re a closet symphony-goer. I used to be one. You don’t talk about it much. You never invite your friends to go with you. You don’t talk much about your Saturday plans and you say you have “other arrangements,” when really you’re going early to the Orpheum to catch Maestro’s pre-concert talk. Well, now is the time to boast unabashedly about your love for the symphony. Because you know you know someone who has never been to the symphony but will want to see this performance. You can’t in good conscience keep this from them. Spread the word.
I don’t know what to expect from a concert like this. I do know the stage will be packed: with performers, with talent, with spectacle. Will it tend toward the rock side of things, with lights and flourish, or will it highlight the orchestra a little bit more? I don’t know, but I can’t wait to find out.
