Spectrum of Color
Join us for an evening of colors and sounds! The Rainbow City Concert Band and Orchestra present music inspired by the spectrum of colors that illuminate our daily lives. The evening includes a solo performance by pianist Abel Lifschutz in the seminal classic, Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin and a performance by flutist Dr. Sarah Bassingthwaighte in a movement of the flute concerto, Silver Lining by Frank Tichelli. Additionally, the concert includes a world premiere by composer Caleb Gomes, commissioned by Rainbow City Performing Arts, in celebration of 25 years of building community through music.
All are welcome to this exploration of diverse sounds and colors!
The Rainbow City Concert Band and Rainbow City Orchestra are two of the many ensembles in Rainbow City Performing Arts, a nonprofit with a mission of increasing equity and visibility of LGBTQIA+ people. Performing many styles of music, they focus their performance on music of marginalized composers and themes that uplift through diverse expression of music.
New Composition by Caleb Gomes
We are proud to premiere a new composition, Connections, thanks to the support of 4culture. The piece was written to commemorate our 25th anniversary and exudes the feeling one has when joining and becoming a member of the organization. Through sonic color, Caleb helps you feel the warmth and joy that happens when gaining the sense of inclusion and belonging.
