LIMA — The Lima Symphony Orchestra will fill the Veterans Memorial Civic Center with beautiful music and spectacular images at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 8.
The orchestra will partner with Dr. James Westwater from Westwater Arts Photochoreography to bring the music of Aaron Copland to life with original photographs cued precisely to the music. Westwater will import three huge specially-designed screens into the Civic Center for this stunning performance.
Symphonic photochoreography is an innovative art form created by Westwater that engages audiences worldwide with evocative, multi-image photographic essays choreographed and performed live to selected works of classical music.
The performance will illuminate first the beauty of America’s vast open spaces in “Fanfare for the Common Man” and finally the strong values of the American farm family, the rugged natural beauty of the Eastern Highlands and the tough spirit of the early settlers in Appalachian Spring. The photographs showcased in these pieces are all original works by Westwater.
The concert will also feature Benjamin Britten’s “Four Sea Interludes” and Peter Tchaikovsky’s “Suite from Sleeping Beauty.”
Tickets are $25/$30 for adults and $10/$15 for students.
