Brevard Symphony Orchestra Finds Comedy Inspiration
Comedy fans of all ages can rejoice when Melbourne’s own Brevard Symphony Orchestra, now in its 69th season, will fill the King Center for the Performing Arts with laughs as well music on Saturday, February 4, 2023, at 2:00pm and 7:30pm during their 2022-2023 season POPS concert, Comedy Tonight. Tickets for both concerts are on sale now at https://www.kingcenter.com.
This concert explores comedy, satire, and wit as unlikely but quite viable sources of inspiration for music, featuring Henry Mancini's The Pink Panther, and television themes from hit comedy shows such as The Office, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Monty Python's Flying Circus. Brevard Symphony Orchestra Music Director and Conductor Christopher Confessore says, “The art of musical wit and satire will be on full display with a performance of musical satirist Peter Schickele's Sneaky Pete and the Wolf - a hilarious script that gives us a VERY different take on Prokofiev's classic tale of Peter and the Wolf without changing a single note of music!”
Tickets for all of the concerts are available for purchase via https://www.kingcenter.com/, and all related policies and protocols, including the King Center’s updated bag policy, must be adhered to during BSO concerts and events. Upcoming Brevard Symphony Orchestra concerts include the annual free Family Concert on Sunday, February 19, 2023 at 2:00pm; Mendelssohn & Beethoven on Saturday, March 11, 2023 at 2:00pm and 7:30pm; and American Dream on Saturday, April 15, 2023 at 7:30pm.
