Summon the Heroes: Music of the Olympics
Space Coast Symphony Orchestra - Vero Beach High School PAC


Program Info:
Space Coast Symphony Orchestra
Daniel Perttu, guest composer
Bryan Hayes, tenor

The powerful program features music written for or about the Olympics, many in the fanfare style familiar from the opening ceremonies. Other Olympic selections capture the spirit of competition and the drama of sport. Taken together, the concert provides a soundtrack for the Olympic phenomenon. Indeed, the multi-media experience will include archival and news footage, original film and photo choreography. Composer John Williams is well represented on the program, with four individual pieces, including his Olympic Fanfare and Theme, Summon the Heroes, A Prayer for Peace from Munich, and The Olympic Spirit. The program will also feature the world premiere of Daniel Perttu's Phoenix, a powerful new work inspired by the legend of the Phoenix. Works by Bill Conti, Vangelis, Josef Suk, Richard Rodgers, Leo Arnaud and Dmitri Shostakovich complete the concert offerings.
