Event Details

Join the Great Lakes Chamber Orchestra at Great Lakes Center for the Arts in Bay Harbor for Dreams of Faraway Lands with Flute Soloist Nancy Stagnitta – an exciting musical journey inspired by the cultures of faraway lands on Saturday, April 20th.

Musical portraits by celebrated composers will transport you to the distant regions of the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Southern Europe in this smorgasbord-concert of distinct musical cultures presenting works such as Mozart’s Abduction from Seraglio and Turkish March, Rossini’s Italian Girl in Algiers, Turina’s Five Gipsy Dances, and Sibelius’ incidental score for the play Belshazzar’s Feast.

The highlight of the concert is Marcus Paus’ Portrait of Zhou for Flute and Orchestra. Paus is the most prominent contemporary Norwegian composer of our time known for promoting works that are influenced by folk music and non-Western classical music, in this case Chinese music. The piece will be presented by an award-winning flutist Nancy Stagnitta, who is a leading crossover artist as both a classical flutist and jazz artist. Her passion, versatility, and elegant artistry have led to concert engagements in Africa, Europe, Asia, and across the U.S. In 2018, she gave the Asian premiere of David Amram’s Giants of the Night Flute Concerto with the China National Symphony in Beijing.
