Happy Feet

20th century Ballet Scores


7:30  Saturday, January 21,  2023
Greaves Concert Hall, NKU

Some of the world’s most beloved symphonic music is found in music of the dance and ballet scores. The KSO, in its quest to uncover unique and engaging music, found three inspiring and diverse 20th c ballet scores by Aaron Copland, William Grant Still and Manuel de Falla, which tell the stories of a wild-west outlaw, an African hunting festival, and Spanish seduction. The music and tales are colorful, employing cowboy tunes, ceremonial drumming and chanting, and flamenco flair and sizzle.
