#SalemOR Concert Band presents: Triumph of the Spirit at Historic Elsinore Theatre – Sun. May 20th


Salem Concert Band will present

Triumph of the Spirit

May 20, 2018 | 3:00 PM

Historic Elsinore Theatre | 170 High St SE, Salem

The concert will feature the U.S. premiere of the Austrian film 1805, A Town’s Tale.

The band will perform the musical score by Otto M. Schwarz live at the concert.

The film is a touching story of friendship, determination and everlasting love in the time of Napoleon’s crusade against the Austro-Hungarian Empire. 1805, A Town’s Tale tells the story of Phillipe, a young officer in the Napoleonic Army, and Mina, his love who lives in the city of Krems, which is in the path of the Army. This moving story chronicles how the town survives the threat of devastation by the approaching army.

The concert will begin with Finest Hour by Stephen Melillo. The work is a stirring tribute to Winston Churchill and his courage and leadership in the face of Nazi aggression in World War II. Otto M. Schwarz wrote The Story of Anne Frank as a testament to her powerful history and to help insure that her story is not forgotten. John Williams won Oscar honors for Best Original Music Score for his music for the 1993 film Schindler’s List. The film told the story of Arthur Schindler and his efforts to help hundreds of Jews survive the Holocaust. The music is a poignant reminder of those who perished and the courage of those who survived. The final selection on the program is La Mezquita de Cordoba by Julie Giroux, which honors the history of this religious center that traces back to 169 BC, when the Romans founded Cordoba, Spain. Muslims, Christians and Jews have practiced their respective faiths in peace within its walls. The work is a celebration of its multi-cultural, religious, and artistic accomplishments.

Caius Oprea will be the guest violin soloist with the band. He is featured on three of the selections in the program; 1805, A Town’s Tale, The Story of Anne Frank and the Theme from Schindler’s List. Caius was born in Romania. He studied at Julliard and Portland State University. He was concertmaster of the National Symphony Orchestra of South Africa, the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra, the Jena Philharmonie as well as the Hanover State Opera in Germany. Currently he is concertmaster of the Festival Chorale Orchestra. The band is comprised of about 55 woodwind, brass, string and percussion players.

This concert will conclude the Salem Concert Band’s 43rd season. The band has been entertaining Salem audiences since 1975. They perform an annual concert of popular music in the picturesque setting at the Youngberg Hill Vineyard each August. Their regular season includes four concerts featuring exciting new and established works for band. They also organize and sponsor the annual Salem Tuba Holiday concert on Christmas Eve at the Elsinore Theatre. Band members volunteer their time and pay dues to support the expenses of the ensemble. Salem Concert Band is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. This concert is made possible, in part, by funding from the Marion County Cultural Corporation.

All tickets for the concert are sold as reserved seats.

Tickets are available at the Elsinore Office or online through TicketsWest.com.

Adult tickets are $20. Kindergarten through college students $10 and Premium Mezzanine seating $30.
