Brazosport Symphony Orchestra's season opener will begin with the music of French composer Georges Bizet, featuring L’Arlesienne Suite No. 2 and the Carmen Suite No. 1. The music from both of these suites is very fun and recognizable, as it has been used in numerous movies, cartoons and commercials. The second half of this concert will be Western themed, and feature a music/art collaboration with hometown artist and now Dallas resident Mike Marshall. Mike, inspired by Aaron Copland’s Hoedown, will have prepared an original work of graphic art with a Western flavor. A fast-motion video demonstration of Mike’s creation process will run as the orchestra performs. Three signed prints of the original art will be presented for auction after the concert.

Other musical selections will include Overture from The Cowboys by John Williams, Buckaroo Holiday and Down a Country Lane by Aaron Copland.
