Join seven talented QCSO musicians for a varied program of works for one to seven musicians. Principal bassoonist Benjamin Coelho explores the rhythms of jazz in Libby Larson’s Jazz Variations for Solo Bassoon. Dancers from Ballet Quad Cities join principal clarinetist Daniel Won and principal bassist Dave Scholl to perform the Swing Era inspired Benny’s Gig composed by Morton Gould for the great jazz clarinetist and bandleader Benny Goodman. The full group comes together to perform Stravinsky’s influential and rhythmic ballet The Soldier’s Tale which depicts the story of a young soldier who makes a deal with the Devil. Join the musicians for a Listener’s Guide before intermission to learn more about this engaging work.
