Mark November 1st on your calendar to attend the Southwest Symphony's production of "One Small Step." The orchestra together with a high definition media production tells the dramatic story of the history of spaceflight by combining the music of composer Aaron Copland with archival NASA photographs and film footage. The journey begins on earth with "Fanfare for the Common Man" when the ancient explorers thirst for exploration takes them beyond the mountains and the oceans and finally the skies. Then, Kennedy's challenge to be the first to land on the moon signals the "Appalachian Spring" and the great space race. From the development of NASA to Neil Armstrong's historic moon landing, from tragic disaster to monumental achievements, Copland's magnificent themes propel the story into the present and beyond. The concert begins at 7:30 PM at the Cox Auditorium on the Dixie State University campus in St. George, UT Order your tickets NOW at: www.SouthwestSymphony.co

This recording, called "Russian Masterworks" is a very important recording to Ken as this was his very first LP purchase of classical music. This recording was already out of print when Ken purchased it from a local Radio Shack store in 1965. This was a 4 LP set on clearance for only $1.99. However, this $1.99 purchase set Ken on the road to a life-long love of classical music.

For our debut broadcast of season 10 we are very proud to bring to you our initial concert of this year's Verdi Opera Series. All performances of this series are performed and recorded by the CMD Grand Opera Company of Venice. All performances will be conducted by Salvatore Malano. Nabucco (short Nebuchadnezzar) is in four acts composed in 1841 by Giuseppe Verdi to an Italian libretto by Solera. The libretto is based on the Biblical story and the 1836 play performed at La Scala in Milan on 9 March 1842. Nabucco is the opera which is considered to have permanently established Verdi's reputation as a composer. He commented that "this is the opera with which my artistic career really begins. And though I had many difficulties to fight against, it is certain that Nabucco was born under a lucky star. The opera follows the plight of the Jews as they are assaulted, conquered, and subsequently exiled from their homeland by the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar. The historical events are used as background for a romantic and political plot. The best-known number from the opera is the "Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves," "Fly, thought, on golden wings," a chorus which is regularly given an encore in many opera houses when performed today. This performance was recording using the new CMD Digital Orchestral Recording System. Order this as a digital download or on CDs below: Select Format and Shipping Method Digital Download $5.99 USD CDs and Shipping to US $19.99 USD CDs and International Shipping $29.99 USD
