MARIETTA – Get ready for great orchestral pops music, this time with a Marietta twist. The River Cities Symphony brings the tunes and talent you know and love to a great local venue. Selections include Hoagy Carmichael’s “Stardust”, Rogers & Hammerstein’s “Carousel”, “No, No, Nannette”, and Hamlish’s “The Way We Were”. Maestro Turizziani has even found a local connection, with selections from the musical “Naughty Marietta”, as well as Marietta’s own “Battle Hymn”.
Continuing in the RCSO’s tradition of featuring outstanding young musicians, local clarinetist Kell Campbell will also perform the 3 rd movement of Weber’s Concerto for Clarinet. Kell is a sophomore at WVU, where he plays in the Wind Symphony, and is a former WV Youth Symphony player, PHS student, and Allstate Band winner.
