Masterworks II: Fit for a King
November 6 @ 2:00 pm CST
This concert rich with royalty begins with Duke Ellington’s jazz and gospel-influenced Three Black Kings. QCSO principal cellist Hannah Holman will captivate with the rich and haunting cello soliloquies of Ernest Bloch’s Schelomo, the final work of his Jewish Cycle. The King of Rock and Roll’s signature sound is alive and well in Michael Daugherty’s Dead Elvis featuring QCSO principal bassoonist Benjamin Coelho. We toast to friendship with Johann Strauss, Jr.’s stately Emperor Waltz, before ending the program with William Walton’s intense and cinematic Henry V Suite.
Tickets are currently available only in a Full or Pick-3 Masterworks Subscription or as an add-on for QCSO at the Movies or Up Close Subscribers. Tickets will go on sale to the public on May 17, 2022, at 9:00 am.
