We’re no longer positive how this will paintings. Or why it's far going on. But we’re positive it'll be awesome.
The plan is for the Orchestra to divide into five separate chamber groups and station themselves within the aviation and space galleries on both the Museum’s East and West Campuses.
Each group plans to play picks with the aid of composers consisting of Mendelssohn and Weber to celebrate aviation, area, history, and technological know-how.
Here’s this system:
Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826): Quintet for clarinet and strings in B-flat most important, Op. 34.
Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809-1947): String octet in E-flat predominant, Op. 20.
Joachim Raff (1822-1882): Sinfonietta for winds in F principal, Op. 188.
Plus preparations for brass ensemble.
The Museum performances are a part of a North American excursion through the Stuttgart, Germany-based totally orchestra, and are unfastened with admission to the Museum of Flight.
Museum of Flight No Stranger to Music
This isn’t the first time a music manufacturing has taken over the Museum of Flight.
During the pandemic, the Seattle Opera was scheduled to present a overall performance of “Flight.” The 3-act opera changed into written in 1998 via composer Jonathan Dove and librettist April De Angelis and has been completed around the arena.
Here’s the tale of the opera:
“An omniscient air traffic controller watches over a departure front room bustling with relentlessly cheerful flight attendants, an excitable couple on vacation, a mysterious older lady, and a diplomat and his expectant wife, all of whom should spend the night to attend out a typhoon. At the heart of the display is the Refugee, a individual inspired through Mehran Karimi Nasseri, who lived in Charles de Gaulle Airport close to Paris for nearly 18 years.”
The pandemic meant that Seattle Opera couldn't perform the show stay. But instead of bypass on the possibility to present it, the Seattle Opera teamed up with Seattle’s Museum of Flight and filmed the opera there.
