Music of Shakespeare
Saturday, May 10, 2014, 8 p.m.
Conant Performing Arts Center,
Oglethorpe University


Perfect for our final concert at Georgia Shakespeare’s home at Oglethorpe, we explore a number of works written specifically about famous Shakespeare plays. We feature the beautifully romantic Tchaikovsky Romeo and Juliet, the dark Richard III Overture by Smetana, the rich texture of Dvorak’s Othello, and one of the most lush works of music by William Walton, the Henry V Suite. Don’t be surprised if some of the acts spring to life in the audience, in costume, of course!

(Please note that this concert is at 8:00 p.m.)

Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring is an exceptional work of American music which paints a picture of the expansive West. Listen to a portion of our performance of Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring.

Having visited Paris in the 1920s, George Gershwin decided to capture the bustle of the city in his 1928 piece, An American in Paris. Listen to the Georgia Philharmonic's rendition of this classic work, complete with tuned taxi horns.

Pierre Ruhe of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper recently reviewed the orchestra. Read what the AJC had to say about the Georgia Philharmonic.
