An Orchestra Will Take Over This Aviation Museum

University of Stuttgart Academic Orchestra.

 We’re no longer certain how this may work. Or why it's miles going on. But we’re sure it will be super.

On September 21, from 3 pm to five pm, the University of Stuttgart Academic Orchestra will take over all 5 predominant galleries at Seattle’s Museum of Flight.

The plan is for the Orchestra to divide into 5 separate chamber businesses and station themselves within the aviation and area galleries on each the Museum’s East and West Campuses.

Each group plans to play alternatives by composers which include Mendelssohn and Weber to celebrate aviation, space, records, and science.

Here’s this system:

Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826): Quintet for clarinet and strings in B-flat main, Op. 34.
Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809-1947): String octet in E-flat predominant, Op. 20.
Joachim Raff (1822-1882): Sinfonietta for winds in F main, Op. 188.
Plus preparations for brass ensemble.

The Museum performances are part of a North American tour through the Stuttgart, Germany-primarily based orchestra, and are loose with admission to the Museum of Flight.

Museum of Flight No Stranger to Music

Seattle Opera Dress Rehearsal at Museum of Flight

This isn’t the first time a music production has taken over the Museum of Flight.

During the pandemic, the Seattle Opera was scheduled to give a overall performance of “Flight.” The 3-act opera become written in 1998 by using composer Jonathan Dove and librettist April De Angelis and has been completed around the world.

Here’s the tale of the opera:

An omniscient air site visitors controller watches over a departure front room bustling with relentlessly pleased flight attendants, an excitable couple on holiday, a mysterious older lady, and a diplomat and his expectant wife, all of whom must spend the night time to wait out a storm. At the heart of the show is the Refugee, a character inspired by means of Mehran Karimi Nasseri, who lived in Charles de Gaulle Airport close to Paris for nearly 18 years.”

The pandemic supposed that Seattle Opera could not carry out the show stay. But as opposed to bypass on the opportunity to present it, the Seattle Opera teamed up with Seattle’s Museum of Flight and filmed the opera there.
