The Music of Fairy Tales and Fantastic Beasts Takes Capitol Hill
Rainbow City Band Performs Fantastical Classical and Contemporary Pieces
SEATTLE, WA – Rainbow City Band (RCB) is performing Fairy Tales and Fantastic Beasts, a concert exploring tales of the enchanting and magical, on January 20, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. at the Broadway Performance Hall on Capitol Hill in Seattle, WA.
“With this concert we want to take you on a journey exploring tales of the enchanting and magical. Creatures and their stories will jump off the page and show that sometimes the ostracized become the most influential and often times we may draw power from those very things that make us queer,” says Tim Norris, Musical and Artistic Director. “Together we’ll travel through the looking glass and take time to enjoy the frivolity of the ride.”
Among the featured pieces are Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saëns and Godzilla Eats Las Vegas! by Eric Whitacre.
The concert also includes performances by Purple Passion Swing Band, The Saxodies, and Flütrange.
RCB is also proud to recognize Lifelong in its Community Spotlight. Lifelong is a community health organization committed to empowering people living with or at risk of HIV and/or other chronic conditions to lead healthier lives.
