Hilarious Holidays! Music to Warm and Tickle. . .

Originally composed for a piano and an orchestra, the Calgary Wind Symphony arranged the piece for the wind symphony instruments, including arranging the string parts for saxophones. "Le Tombeau de Liberace" is a tribute to Wladziu Valentino Liberace, a flamboyant pianist who arranged and performed pieces from the classical, Broadway, and polka repertoires in Las Vegas. Comprising four movements, this work highlights a few of the garish yet attractive characteristics of Liberace's music. -------- TICKETS: $15 (adults) / $12 (students/seniors) Tickets are available by calling (403) 214-7571, through www.calgarywindsymphony.com, or at the door INFO: Call (403) 214-7571, e-mail calgarywindsymphony@gmail.com, or visit www.calgarywindsymphony.com for more information.
