The Program

"Musical Visions" is the first event of Grand Rapids Symphony's MusicNOW three-concert series. MusicNOW presents contemporary works alongside visual elements. Curated by the evening's soloist, Colorado Symphony principal timpanist Bill Hill, "Musical Visions" showcases the percussionist's musical influences, historical interests, and development as a composer.

  • Bill Hill—Journey of Ra: Teaming up with his daughter Nadja on violin and vocals, Hill channels Ra, the ancient Egyptian god of sun and life, with a heavily improvisatory style.
  • Bill Hill—Full Moon at Giza: The counterpoint to the previous piece and completion of the life cycle, Full Moon at Giza conjures images of death with the riq (an Egyptian tambourine) and doumbec (a hand drum).
  • Kalevi Aho—Symphony No. 14 Rituals: One of Hill's influences, Finnish composer Kalevi Aho incorporated the Arabian darabuka and African djemebe drums into his colorful symphony and teenage son's wakeup alarm.
  • Bill Hill—Ancient Rituals: Hill's newest work—making its world premiere—incorporates four percussionists and solo parts for nearly every member of the orchestra to evoke the feeling of a sunset and moonrise at Colorado's Mesa Verde, the ancient home of the Native American Cliff Dweller civilization.
