Symphonies of Iowa Featuring an Encore Broadcast of Orchestra Iowa, September 30, 2013

Sep 25, 2013

On Iowa Public Radio’s Symphonies of Iowa encore broadcast scheduled for Monday, September 30 at 7 p.m., Orchestra Iowa combines romantic tragedies with exciting new works to create an electric program called Star-Crossed Lovers. Prokofiev’s ballet Romeo and Juliet and Tchaikovsky’s fantasy-overture of the same title will set the musical stage. You’ll enjoy a modern take on the evening’s theme with Drive By, by Iowa composer and Grinnell College faculty member Eric McIntyre. Actor and narrator Frank Oden presents a unique twist on the story of Romeo and Juliet by combining orchestral nuance with beat poetry. The program closes with Symphonic Dances from Bernstein’s West Side Story.
