Central Florida Community Arts Announces “The Year That Wasn’t” Orchestral Concert
Central Florida Community Arts has announced that tickets are on sale for The Year That Wasn’t, their first full orchestral concert of 2021.
Conductor Justin Muchoney has put together a program of nostalgic pieces meant to remind guests of shared experiences, like travel and vacations. “Olympic Fanfare” and the theme and “1812 Overture” will capture major events like fireworks and the postponed Olympics. A medley of film scores will bring memories of summer blockbusters. Moments of reflection will also be presented, as with Copland’s “Variations on a Shaker Melody”. The actors will weave the program with monologues between selections.
The program will open with an original piece by local composer Julian Bond. Reflecting on the purpose of the program and the importance of adding an original piece, Muchoney said, “Even in the middle of a year where we haven’t had the opportunity to live life the way we wanted, we felt compelled to keep creating. a whole new job will feature musicians coming together, reconnecting after too much time away, and it will kick off a fun night with tracks that will bring back memories of things we all love to do. “
The CFCArts Symphony Orchestra takes a musical look at how much we’ve missed in 2020. Full of heart, humor and incredible music, this concert will celebrate everything from the Olympics and blockbuster movies to vacations and family vacations. Invite your family and friends over and get ready to laugh, connect, and remember what it’s like to discover great music again with great people. While we can’t give you a chance to do it again in 2020, we can look back on the year that was and the year that wasn’t!
Tickets: $ 12-25. Tickets can be purchased by visiting CFCArts.com or by calling the Northland Box Office at (855) 900-0006.
