Summer Strings 2011
Come hear the premiere performance of High Speed Rail on Thursday evening, July 28th at Kiwanis Park in Charleston, Illlinois. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m., and admission is free. The program will also include in-house (made by me) transcriptions of pieces written in the 13th century ("When I see Winter Return" by Musset), the 16th century (one of Susato's Bass Dances), some Mozart, some Martini (G. B. that is), some Janacek, Schumann, Gershwin, Dvorak, and a bunch of film music and "classic" pop songs, including an in-house arrangement of the Macarena, made by Nina Marshall.
Here's a map. Our arteries to the larger world are Route 57 (on the left), Route 130 (on the right), and I-70 (which is not on the map, but connects to both routes) is about 15 miles south of Charleston.
