We’re no longer sure how this may work. Or why it's miles going on. But we’re certain it'll be first-rate.
The plan is for the Orchestra to divide into five separate chamber agencies and station themselves inside the aviation and space galleries on both the Museum’s East and West Campuses.
Each group plans to play choices via composers which include Mendelssohn and Weber to celebrate aviation, area, records, and technological know-how.
Here’s the program:
Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826): Quintet for clarinet and strings in B-flat essential, Op. 34.
Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809-1947): String octet in E-flat fundamental, Op. 20.
Joachim Raff (1822-1882): Sinfonietta for winds in F main, Op. 188.
Plus arrangements for brass ensemble.
The Museum performances are part of a North American excursion through the Stuttgart, Germany-based totally orchestra, and are loose with admission to the Museum of Flight.
Museum of Flight No Stranger to Music
This isn’t the primary time a track manufacturing has taken over the Museum of Flight.
During the pandemic, the Seattle Opera changed into scheduled to give a overall performance of “Flight.” The 3-act opera became written in 1998 by means of composer Jonathan Dove and librettist April De Angelis and has been achieved round the world.
Here’s the tale of the opera:
“An omniscient air site visitors controller watches over a departure front room bustling with relentlessly cheerful flight attendants, an excitable couple on excursion, a mysterious older girl, and a diplomat and his expectant wife, all of whom should spend the night to attend out a hurricane. At the heart of the display is the Refugee, a character inspired through Mehran Karimi Nasseri, who lived in Charles de Gaulle Airport near Paris for almost 18 years.”
The pandemic intended that Seattle Opera could not perform the show stay. But rather than skip on the possibility to present it, the Seattle Opera teamed up with Seattle’s Museum of Flight and filmed the opera there.
