Saxophone Fusion featuring James Carter
April 20 @ 7:30 pm9:30 pm$24 – $89
Symphony Tacoma welcomes James Carter to join the orchestra for a presentation of Caribbean Rhapsody, written for him by Puerto Rico native Roberto Sierra. The piece combines classical and Latin jazz influences that “recall memories of tropical colors and sounds.” The concert also includes Fanny Mendelssohn’s Overture in C; Poulenc’s satirical Sinfonietta; and Milhaud’s La Création du Monde which tells the creation story according to African folk mythology with influences of Harlem Renaissance jazz and a multimedia film with art visuals, from African tribal sculptures to works by Picasso and Gauguin.
