        MUSIC AT THE MEADOWS
If you attended the Rogue Valley Symphony Orchestra concert in February, you heard a wonderful local musician featured as the soloist. Dan Kocurek, trumpeter,  performed Piazzola's Libertango with the orchestra. This piece was originally written for violin. Dan approaches his trumpet playing with the purposeful sensitivity of a violinist.  

On Thursday, May 25th, Dan and his wife, pianist, Christine Eggert, performed for Mountain Meadows residents a program they called "Tango Marendo". They opened the program with a piano/trumpet arrangement of Libertango followed by Six Popular Spanish Songs by Manuel de Falla. After the de Falla, Christine offered a impressive performance of The Lark by Glinka. Dan returned to join her for the rest of the program. They played L'Alouette by Milo Balakirev, Tango Marendo by Kenji Bunch; and Three Preludes by George Gershwin. Five years ago, they toured the country with this program. Dan told us that they resurrected it especially for us. It was certainly well received by their audience. 

The performers are both instructors at SOU and their comfort interacting with us was a clear example of how engaging their classes must be for the SOU students. They talked about the composers of their musical selections and gave us clues about what to listen for in the music. When it came time for Tango Marendo, a piece that continually changed mood, rhythm and tempi, Christine read a story she had written that gave context to the musical changes and made the piece so much more interesting...
