Salina Symphony Concert November 6 with composer Prokofiev

Salina Symphony

The Salina Symphony will present an afternoon of “Romance” on November 6.

Under the direction of musical director Yaniv Segal, the symphony is scheduled to perform at 4 p.m. Nov. 6 at the Stiefel Theater, 151 S. Santa Fe Avenue.

The concert will offer something for everyone, starting with the captivating melodrama of Tchaikovsky Romeo and Juliet followed by the thoughtful yet catchy music from Gabriel Prokofiev’s genre-defying crossover album, Break the screens. After the intermission, the public will experience a romantic musical journey with Symphony in Scenes: Skychangea four-movement work based on the music Maestro Segal wrote for his wedding.

Guest artist Gabriel Prokofiev

London DJ and composer Gabriel Prokofiev, grandson of Sergei Prokofiev, will join the symphony as a guest artist. Composing music that both embraces and challenges Western classical traditions, Prokofiev has become an important voice in new approaches to classical music in the early 21st century.

Prokofiev built up a large body of orchestral and chamber works and composed seven concertos (three of them with turntables) as well as numerous electronic works, often combining synthesizers and samples with classical instrumentation. His works have been performed internationally by orchestras including the Seattle Symphony,

Detroit Symphony, St Petersburg Philharmonic, Moscow State Symphony and BBC Philharmonic, among many others.

Prokofiev is also an events curator, producer and founder of the Nonclassical record label and club night, home to a host of artists who defy convention. Through Nonclassical, he has been a leading proponent of presenting classical music in non-traditional venues.
