Dance Music From Three Countries

In our next concert, we present an exciting program of dance music from Italy, Germany, and the United States.

The concert begins with infectious music by the Italian film composer Nino Rota, with a suite of dances from his score to the 1963 film The Leopard, then moves to the folk-based music of Saturday Night Waltz from American composer Aaron Copland’s music for the ballet Rodeo.

Staying with Copland, the KSO welcomes Guest Artist and Kamloops native, Baritone Scott Brooks to the stage, to perform Old American Songs.

Scott’s earliest foray onto the operatic stage took place in Kamloops’ own Sagebrush Theatre, in the KSO production of the musical Oliver! Since then, Scott has returned to sing with the KSO Continue reading Dance Music From Three Countries
