We Gather Together Concert

11/26/2022 at 7:00 PM to 12:00 AM

Event Description

Celebrate Thanksgiving with your Space Coast Symphony Orchestra!  Grammy-winning pianist, Jeffrey Biegel returns to Central Florida to perform three incredible works, including the world premiere of Christopher Marshall’s Thanksgiving Variations, a set of stunning, virtuosic variations based on the popular hymn, “We Gather Together.”  Biegel will also perform a moving work he wrote, a themed trilogy titled Three Reflections, which includes a “Reflection of Justice: An Ode to Ruth Bader Ginsburg”, “Reflection of Freedom: An Ode to John Fitzgerald Kennedy” and, “Reflection of Equality: An Ode to Martin Luther King.”  Also on the program is Dick Tunney’s enchanting Peanuts Concerto, based on the music of Charlie Brown composer, Vince Guaraldi.  This moving arrangement sets Guaraldi’s classic music from the Peanuts specials, into a three-movement work for piano and orchestra. It will be a wonderful introduction for families to hear the jazz writings of the late Guaraldi in a 21st-century symphonic landscape.  The program is rounded out with two works from Aaron Copland, “The Promise of Living” from The Tender Land and “Simple Gifts” from Appalachian Spring.  The Shaker tune “Simple Gifts” was written in 1848 by Joseph Brackett and made famous by Copland.  This well-loved tune has come to symbolize simplicity, joy, and freedom.
