Live painting event with Community Orchestra

The Sunshine Coast Community Orchestra Association presents Modern Masterpieces

The Suncoast Concert Band:
"Modern Masterpieces for Wind Ensemble”

Date and Location: 
Saturday April 27th, 7:00 PM 
Sechelt Indian Band Hall      
Ticket Price: Adults $15, Children $5        

The spring concert Modern Masterpieces for Wind Ensemble will be sure to change your thinking about Concert Band Music forever. This Concert will highlight music by some of the great composers of today, including Frank Ticceli and Eric Whitacre. 

Playing with sound, provoking visual images by creating soundscapes and exploring tone colour through instrumentation and percussion are a few of the exciting elements that tie the music in this program together. Some of the pieces, including the large work "Angels in the Architecture" will be translated into visual art live during the performance by Artists Donna Swain (above) and Paula O’Brien. (below)  

“Angels in the Architecture ” also features Soprano Sara Douglas, who will sing the haunting vocal lines in this fascinating piece. Concert Bands are no longer relegated to militaristic and fanfare functions, and are now a serious medium for composers to use for full musical expression. Feel free to bring your own sketch book and be inspired!
