On February 4, 2017 Peery’s Egyptian Theater and the Egyptian Theater Foundation will present the second concert of Chamber Orchestra Ogden’s 2016-2017 season. This concert, which is billed as the Annual Red Dress Event, is sponsored by Ogden Regional Medical Center, and will be a celebration of February as American Heart Month.
The concert will open with a performance of Schumann’s Konzertstück for Four Horns and Orchestra. Laura Huggard, the orchestra’s principal horn, has brought together three other very talented horn players, Anita Miller, Sonja Reynolds, and Natalie Douglass, collectively named the Sego Lily Quartet, to perform this virtuosic composition. https://sites.google.com/site/segolilyhorns/
Following the Schumann the concert will move in a different direction, introducing our solo guest artist Brian Booth. Brian is a well-known saxophonist from Salt Lake City. He has written and arranged the music that he will perform with the orchestra. First up will be his arrangement of My Foolish Heart, in honor of American Heart Month. This will be followed by his composition Jazz Creek, a composition in four sections – Prologue, Up, Jazz Creek, and Without a Paddle. It’s going to be great fun.
The concert will take place at Peery’s Egyptian Theater, 2415 Washington Blvd in Ogden. This will be the orchestra’s second concert in this wonderful theater. The first concert was nearly sold out, and this one, the Annual Red Dress Event, always has a large audience, so get your tickets early online.
