If your ear is hoping to hear something classical but decidedly modern—it’ll make sense in a minute—don’t miss the Sacramento Philharmonic Classical Concert “Traditionally Modern” on Saturday, Jan. 11 at 8 p.m. at the Community Center Theater.
Under the direction of maestro Michael Morgan, the Sac Phil will introduce audiences to a man known simply as DBR: Daniel Bernard Roumain, a new-media violinist and composer who’s turning the tables on traditional classical music. His multimedia musical approach has been riveting listeners across the country, and now he’ll take to the stage in Sacramento with his unique “Woodbox Concerto.” Also presented in the program will be Brahms’s “Variations on a Theme by Haydn” and Stravinsky’s “Firebird Suite”—sure to set the stage ablaze.
For a little background before you listen, arrive early for the 7 p.m. presentation “Speaking of Music,” a pre-concert talk that will lend important insights on the evening ahead.
For tickets and more information, call (916) 808-5181 or visit 2intune.org (the Sac Phil’s collaboration with the Sacramento Opera). The Community Center Theater is located at 1301 L St.
