Celebrating the Roaring Twenties

Classical, Orchestral
Ravel: La Valse | Boulanger: D’un Matin de Printemps |
Boulanger: Fantasy for Piano and Orchestra |
Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue | An American in Paris |
On the centennial of the Roaring Twenties, Symphony Tacoma celebrates the French and American musical influences of the decade. Ravel’s La Valse is a tribute to the Viennese waltz. The Boulanger sisters, both talented composers, left us few—yet notable—works. After Lili’s death at an early age, Nadia stopped composing but her influence continued through her teaching of many important composers of the last century. Gershwin’s iconic Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris evoke imagery of the jazz, dance and art that define the era. Tacoma favorite Charlie Albright returns for a third performance with Symphony Tacoma.

The Grammy winning Soul and R&B quintet perform classic hits in an unforgettable night! The history of The Temptations is the history of contemporary American pop. An essential component of the original Motown machine, they began their musical career in Detroit in the early sixties. It wasn’t until 1964, that the Smokey Robinson written-and-produced “The Way You Do the Things You Do” transformed the guys into stars. An avalanche of hits followed, songs from “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” “Beauty Is only Skin Deep,” to “My Girl,” all which have attained immortality.
