Augustana Arts presents “Daydreams and Nightmares” performed by the Stratus Chamber Orchestra and featuring Arlette Aslanian-Townsend, Violin, Tamara Maddaford, Flute and Johanna Burian, Horn. Performances at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, November 17 at the First Plymouth Congregational Church, 3501 S. Colorado Blvd, Englewood, CO 80113 and again on Saturday, November 18 at 7:30 p.m. at Augustana Lutheran Church, 5000 E. Alameda Ave., Denver, CO 80246. Tickets are $10 - $25 and available by calling 303-388-4962, online at www.AugustanaArts.org or at the door.
The Friday, November 17 performance is performed in immersive style where the audience and the orchestra sit together. The Saturday concert is performed in a traditional setting with the audience separate from the orchestra. All seats are general admission, and the house will open at approximately 7:00pm.
An evening of music that is capricious, whimsical and, at times, slightly ghoulish includes Gounod's "Funeral March of a Marionette,” Saint-Saens "Danse Macabre," Debussy’s “Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun,” Dvorak’s “The Noon Witch,” Glazunov’s “Reverie, Op.24” and Honegger’s “Pastorale d’ete.” Transcendental, masterful works of eccentricity will be paired with equally fantastical and off-kilter art.
Special guest, Artist Johanna Bloom, will be creating art on the spot based on audience feedback and participation during the performance.
