ALICE DADE AND SCOTT YOO
As our audiences know well by now, conductor Scott Yoo cuts a particularly dynamic figure on the MCO stage: dramatic, precise, and above all deeply musical. “The guy simply oozes music,” writes the Rocky Mountain News. He’s “totally connected to every aspect of the music” (Norfolk Daily News).
Scott is the conductor of the Mexico City Philharmonic Orchestra and host of PBS series Now Hear This – the first show about classical music on American prime time TV in 50 years – and appears alongside frequent guest star flutist (and wife!) Alice Dade. The exceptional musician has appeared with many of the world’s leading ensembles from Moscow Chamber Orchestra to the New York Philharmonic.
The musical synergy between the two and the orchestra will be electric, as they perform a new flute concerto by Michael Fine and Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 2, in B Minor. In addition to religious works, Bach wrote reams of secular pieces, many of them dance suites. These suites can be incredibly ‘catchy’, and you’ll hear unforgettable dances and earworms when we perform the B minor suite with the crack group of musicians assembled for this show.
Also on the program is Bartok’s popular Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, which you’ll likely have heard in countless Hollywood films, rounding off an eclectic program of spectacular music.
The concert begins at 7.30pm on Wednesday, November 9th, in Westminster United Church, 745 Westminster at Maryland. Casual tickets will be available 10 August 2022 here and on MCO’s Ticketline at 204-783-7377.
