YPC: Musical Storytelling

October 21, 2022 9:30 & 11:00 AM

Andrew Crust, Conductor

Sandeep Das, Tabla

Michael Houff, Violin

Join the Lima Symphony Orchestra as we hear captivating tales from the near to far East through musical fantasy. Opening this incredible concert are the subtle and varied sounds of the Indian Tabla, drums that composer Dinuk Wijeratne describes as being able to speak – almost as if they have a tongue. Performed by master tabla player Sandeep Das, the compelling complexity of North Indian classical music combines seamlessly with the orchestra in unexpected ways. Completing this musical voyage is Rimsky-Korsakov’s romantic masterpiece Scheherazade, inspired by folklore from 1,001 Arabian Nights.
