Afternoon - U.S. Marine Band Concert Celebrating Shakespeare at NVCC - Alexandria, VA
Free Concert Celebrating Shakespeare's 450th Birthday at NoVa Community College with the United States Marine Band
2:00pm - 4:00pm
"April 23, 2014, will mark the 450th anniversary of the birth of the most remarkable storyteller in history, William Shakespeare. His timeless themes are as relevant today as they were four and a half centuries ago. With thousands of unforgettable quotes and more than 1,700 English words coined by the Bard of Avon, his influence continues to extend far beyond the theater and into our everyday lives. This program features both music of Shakespeare’s time, such as Gordon Jacob’s William Byrd Suite, and works borne from his inimitable prose, such as Sergei Prokofiev’s famous ballet based on Romeo and Juliet and highlights from Sir Arthur Sullivan’s incidental music for The Tempest. The program will include a solo performance by the winner of the 2014 Concerto Competition for high school musicians. SULLIVAN/trans. D. Patterson*: Suite from The Tempest, Opus 1 JACOB: William Byrd Suite PROKOFIEV/trans. D. Patterson*: Suite from Romeo and Juliet"
