Don't miss the CWU Symphony Orchestra's performance at 7 PM Monday on KYVE-47 public television's "CWU on Stage."
The program features Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68 Johannes Brahms, conducted by CWU Director of Orchestras, Nikolas Caoile.
Graduate student Dean Snavely will conduct "Be Thou My Vision, by David Gillingham, who described the work this way:
The work opens with a medieval-like flavor of reverence leading to the first presentation of "Slane" ("Be Thou My Vision") in D-minor stated in chant-like somberness by the euphonium. Following, the newly composed Irish ballad is sung by the flute which leads to a dramatic statement of "Be Thou My Vision" by the full ensemble in A-major. The work is interrupted by a prayerful interlude. Following is the marriage of the two Irish tunes in Db-major which grows to a glorious climax and then subsides. A heavenly benediction closes the work.
CWU on Stage is a partnership between CWU and KYVE-47/KCTS-9. Enjoy previous performances online at http://kcts9.org/cwu-on-stage.
