World Wonders Concert


By Tanisa Crosby

The Orchestra of Southern Utah is excited to announce their World Wonders Concert on Thursday, February 22 at 7:30 pm at the Heritage Center. Come take a round-trip to visit some of the great Wonders of the World through music. On this trip, we’ll be visiting The Great Barrier Reef with music from Debussy’s La Mer, The Great Pyramid of Giza with a medley from the Prince of Egypt, and Song of India by Rimksy-Korsakov representing the Taj Mahal.

You could spend thousands of dollars on traveling the world, but this music has its own fascinating power to transport the musicians and audience. Travel with us as we perform Jumping Bean a piece written by Villa-Lobos represents the World Wonders of Macchu Picchu and Christ the Redeemer Statue. Dr. Xun Sun originally premiered a Chinese piece Floating Cloud, Flowing River in China. This elegant melody savors a beautiful day and the joy of nature that you can see all around as if you were on top of the Great Wall of China. 

To enhance your travels with the Orchestra of Southern Utah, beautiful pictures will be displayed throughout the music. Poems will be performed by Canyon View High School students. Lauren S. Carter, this past years English Sterling Scholar, wrote her own poem that promises to be emotionally stirring.
We also welcome two guest performers: The Red Rock Singers, who will give us a small taste of the Carmina Burana to be performed with SUU’s choir, orchestra, and dancers on selected dates from February 28-March 5. The Southern Utah String Quartet, comprised of OSU musicians who have performed ensemble music for 30 years. Book your tickets now to journey with the Orchestra around the world.
