Southwest Florida audiences are invited to enjoy two professional performances in mid-January as part of Shell Point Retirement Community’s 2015-2016 Concert Series. Both concerts will highlight classical masterpieces by famed composers.
Shell Point is proud to partner with the Southwest Florida Symphony to offer “Discover Beethoven’s Eroica,” a multimedia orchestral presentation on Thursday, Jan. 14, at 7:30 p.m. in The Village Church. Conducted by Maestro Leif Bjaland, this concert will chronicle Ludwig van Beethoven’s creative journey as he composed his first great symphonic masterpiece, Symphony No. 3, Eroica.
“Attending symphony concerts at Shell Point is especially wonderful because of the enhanced audio-visual equipment on stage at The Village Church,” said Dee Horne, Shell Point resident and dedicated follower of the arts. “It allows me to see the expressions of performers as they play. I can see emotions cross their faces, and it adds to the overall experience.”
Saxophonist Ashu brings his engaging stage presence to the chamber-style setting of Shell Point’s Grand Cypress Room in The Woodlands on Saturday, Jan. 16, at 7 p.m. Ashu has earned a reputation for his emotional mastery of technical saxophone performances, and has played internationally for many years.
Individual tickets for each concert cost $25, and may be purchased online at www.shellpoint.org/concerts, or by calling the box office at 239-454-2067.
