Friday, May 13th will be a night we will not soon forget. Not because it was Friday the 13th and something terrible happened, but because it was the closing night of the Southwest Symphony's 2015/2016 season and their final concert of the season was truly a memorable delight to all those in attendance. We will hear: Von Suppe's Poet and Peasant Overture Hooked on Classics by Burden Hungarian Dance No. 5 by Brahms Lord of the Dance by Hardiman Brazil by Barroso Sam Kreitzer, guest pianist, performs Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue The Cowboys Overture by John Williams First American Folk Rhapsody by Grundman Blue Grass Medley by Davis The Pink Panther by Henry Mancini Theme from Mission Impossible by Lalo Schifrin Wizard of Oz Medley by Harburg Somewhere in Time by John Barry The orchestra is conducted by Maestro Gary Caldwell.

This is a preview of this week's upcoming broadcast of the Southwest Symphony. Irish composer Ronan Hardiman studied classical piano as a child, but at age 13, he became fascinated with rock music. Unable to make a career in music, he worked in a bank for twelve years before returning to music. Hardiman's hit CD, The Lord of he Dance, has sold more than 1.5 million copies since its release in 1996. Its Irish flavor provided the soundtrack for Michael Flatley's acclaimed dance extravaganza of the same name. It was awarded the title "Best Traditional Album" of 1997, by the Irish Recorded Music Association. This performance by the Southwest Symphony was recorded live on May 13, 2016. Conducted by Gary Caldwell. A CD of this concert can be purchase at our online store. https://www.facebook.com/commerce/products/1035910753141718/

In this broadcast we are pleased to present to you Mystical Voices - Timeless Wisdom for the Present Moment by composer Michael John Trotta. Michael describes this CD as: "Experience proves that exposure to natural beauty, such a watching a sunrise unravel over the sea, or a cloud formation sweep through a mountain range, allows an individual to feel part of something greater than themselves.  Great art does the same.  In an era that is propelled faster and faster by the latest advancements, music has the ability to take time and slow it down, revealing to the participant their part in the whole." The selections you will hear are:  Break of Day In This Present Moment Veni, Veni, Emmanuel Adam Lay Ybounden In the Bleak Midwinter What Then Make Space for Life to Live I Will Keep Still Hidden in Plain Sight Kyrie Sinfonia Early Spring I Ask for a Moment Summer Has Come Veni, Creator Spiritus Prayer for Peace Veni, Veni, Emmanuel (Remix) This CD is available on Amazon and Itunes Before you listen to this broadcast, we hope all of our listeners will find their favorite spot to sit and relax.  Turn the lights down low and let the choral music of Michael John Trotta allow you to perceive the greatness of which all of us are only a very small part.  But yet, each of us is so important to the Universe.
