The Program

  • Mozart—Overture to The Abduction From the Seraglio: for the introduction to his lighthearted opera, Mozart drew inspiration from the playfulness of Turkish folk music.
  • Helms—Seven Ascents for Flute and Orchestra: penned by a founding faculty member of the MSU Community Music School, this composition climbs and climbs to heavenly heights, as indicated by the title.
  • Elgar—Variations on an Original Theme (“Enigma”): Consisting of 14 variations—or “identities”—on the same theme, this composition has an enigma that no one has figured out. However, many think that Elgar slipped a hidden melody into the music.
