Classics 10: Russian Greatness

Eckart Preu, conductor
Spokane Symphony Chorale
Meredith Arwady, mezzo soprano

 
Sergei Prokofiev / Alexander Nevsky Cantata 
Modest Mussorgsky, arr. Maurice Ravel / Pictures at an Exhibition

It doesn't get bigger, more dramatic, more colorful, more Russian, than Alexander Nevsky and Pictures at an Exhibition. Alexander Nevsky, Prokofiev’s film score to Eisenstein’s 1938 film, looks back to the year 1242 when Prince Alexander saved his people from the invading Germans. The final blow, the Battle on the Ice, became a pioneering example of orchestral sound effects. Thrill to the Spokane Symphony Chorale as mighty Russian chorus, and mezzo-soprano Meredith Arwady as a devastated war bride. Then this glorious season struts through a gallery of primitive paintings and marches into summer through the Great Gate of Kiev.

Cheyenne Jackson Sings the Great American Songbook

Cheyenne Jackson
Morihiko Nakahara, conductor


Tickets go on sale Friday, March 28 at 10 a.m.

Cheyenne Jackson is a local boy who grew up in Newport and started his career on the stage of Coeur d’Alene Summer Theater before hitting the big time on Broadway and in Hollywood. Now, after a stellar career that includes sold-out Carnegie Hall concerts and award-winning dramatic performances, he is returning to the Inland Northwest for a special performance with the Spokane Symphony. Jackson will be singing hits from the Great American Songbook, in the tradition of Tin Pan Alley and Broadway spectaculars. 

About Cheyenne Jackson

Jackson—a multi-talented actor, singer, and song writer—has one of the most diverse careers in entertainment. In 2013, he released a new album of original music entitled I’m Blue, Skies, that includes the top 40 hit singles “Drive” and “Before You.” Enjoy the music video for the title song below.


His first leading Broadway role in All Shook Up earned him a Theatre World Award for “Outstanding Broadway Debut.” (Jim Kershner Interview with Jackson about All Shook Up) He went on to star in numerous Broadway shows and various television productions, including NBC’s 30 Rock and Fox’s Glee. Jackson has also appeared in a number of films, including the Oscar-nominated United 93, winning the Boston Society of Film Critics award for Best Ensemble Cast. 

In concert, he has sold-out Carnegie Hall twice. The first was “The Power of Two” (Oct. 2010), a night club act with Michael Feinstein that featured the best of the Great American Songbook. This success was followed by Jackson’s solo debut concert with the New York Pops— “Cheyenne Jackson’s Cocktail Hour: Music of the Mad Men Era” (Nov. 2011). Cheyenne Jackson's website
