A special added holiday feature of the evening will be aerial performances by Taylor Marie on silks and Lyra hoop. Lighting director Elena Bullard commented, “Attendees don’t often get to witness the wonderful visuals and ‘movement art’ performed high above the audience on silks and lyra (hoop), especially in our area. We’re looking forward to an evening of diverse musical styles and elevated movement art.” Taylor has performed in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and California, and has also taught workshops in aerial dance.
“We’re excited to bring a world chamber sound to our Verde Valley - Sedona audience,” OTCA Co-Director William Eaton remarked. “All of the ensemble members are talented soloists in their own right. It will be an evening rich with recognizable, seasonal melodies intertwined with innovative and inspiring improvisation.”
This year’s solstice concert will feature arrangements of classic Christmas songs, including: Carol of the Bells, O Come O Come Emanuel, Joy to the World, What Child Is This, and Silent Night. In addition, the ensemble will present several eclectic instrumental arrangements of Deck the Halls, We Three Kings, Coventry Carol, and Little Drummer Boys, along with a some surprises and a quartet of bow harps and world percussion. The ensemble will also perform an original chamber piece composed by William Eaton, for the Nebraska Chamber Orchestra, entitled With the Love We Bring.
The Winter Solstice is a time of reflection, contemplation and story telling. Music has always been an important part of the solstice tradition amongst all the world’s cultures and religions.
