Rainbow City Band presents 'Planet Earth' concert

RAINBOW CITY BAND
'PLANET EARTH'
BROADWAY PERFORMANCE HALL
January 19 @ 7pm


Rainbow City Band (RCB) presents 'Planet Earth,' a concert featuring music celebrating the majesty of our home, Mother Earth, on January 19 at 7pm at the Broadway Performance Hall (1625 Broadway) off the Seattle Central College South Plaza on Capitol Hill.

The concert includes Darius Milhaud's historic 'Suite Francaise,' Hiroki Takahashi's beautiful 'Song of Earth,' and Rossano Galante's sweeping 'Mt. Everest.' The concert also features the geo-electroacoustic minimalist piece 'Rock Music' by Washington's own Alex Shapiro, in addition to other geographically inspired songs.

'If I were programming this concert 15 to 20 years ago, it would look a lot different,' said Tim Norris, Rainbow City Band Artistic Director. 'It would simply have focused on musical representations of the immense glory of mountain peaks, the vast wonder of desert winds or the idyllic natural beauty of the French countryside. But in 2019 (and within our Transformations Season), we will also include a few pieces that call attention to the dramatic human impact we are having on the future of this resilient yet delicate ecosystem.'

John Mackey's percussive piece 'Foundry' will be followed by Shapiro's innovative 'Rock Music,' which includes band members performing on found rocks and will be accompanied by a stunning video of geological forces and the melting of the polar ice caps.

'The program concludes with a joyful and energetic piece entitled 'River of Life' by Steve Reineke that will leave the musicians and our audience excited and inspired to preserve this home of which we are only temporary inhabitants,' said Norris.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $12 for students and seniors, and $5 for children under 10. They can be purchase from Brown Paper Tickets,

https://rcpaplanetearth.brownpapertickets.com, or starting at 1:30pm on the day of the concert at the Broadway Performance Hall.
