EWU Music Department Presents: Scheherajazz
Eastern Washington University's Music department presents an innovative concert collaboration between its distinguished Symphony Orchestra and Jazz Ensemble as they perform the U.S. premiere - and only the second performance worldwide - of a lost work known as Scheherajazz.
Scheherajazz is a classical/jazz version of the famous orchestral masterpiece Scheherazade composed by Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov in 1888. Scheherajazz was created in the 1950s by American bandleader Skip Martin. While it was recorded for an LP, the piece was never performed live, and the sheet music has since been lost. This original recording can be accessed on YouTube. In 2016 Scheherajazz was transcribed from the original LP by Klaus Wagenleiter. It was later performed live by the orchestra and jazz band at the University of Bern in Switzerland. The concert will also feature a variety of EWU Chamber Ensembles, and proceeds will benefit the EWU Orchestra and Jazz Ensemble.
General admission: $20, Students with ID: $5, EWU Students with ID are free.
