Orchid Isle Orchestra performs “Rhapsody und Bloch” on Sunday, December 4, at 4 p.m. Has now been postponed to 4pm on December 18th at the East Hawaii Cultural Center. The orchestra will play George Gershwin’s Lullaby, a string arrangement of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, Ernest Bloch’s Concerto Grosso No. 1 for strings and piano obbligato (played by Walter Greenwood), Serenata by Michael McLean, and an arrangement of Silent Night that includes motifs from other “night” music by Renata Bratt.
We touch, taste, smell, hear, and see the world around us, assembling our notions of what is though our five senses. Sharing those impressions, we develop a social consensus of reality and orient around the surety of that consensus.
A valued function of the artist is to offer alternative interpretations of what is by modelling what-might-be. Those models present innovative ways of perceiving, thinking, and responding to our changing environments.
