Pictures at an Exhibition – Auburn Symphony Orchestra’s digital season premiere
September 10 - October 10Free
Auburn Symphony Orchestra kicks off its digital season with Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. The live recording from October 2019 will be available to stream for free from September 10 through October 10. Simply go to auburnsymphony.org anytime to view the performance on any streaming device. This special performance was conducted by Music Director Wesley Schulz and includes visual accompaniment by artist Adrian Wyard.
Mussorgsky’s much loved composition is brought to life with fantastical original animations that are suitable for all ages. In keeping with the art theme, each movement has a very distinctive style.
As you see the Orchestra perform Mussorgsky’s epic Pictures at an Exhibition, Wyard’s stunning imagery brings to life classical favorites such as “The Gnome”, “Ballet of the Unhatched Chicks”, “The Market” and more. Wyard’s ‘visual accompaniments’ reflect the moods, rhythms, and narratives in the score, beat by beat, resulting in a perfectly timed live video performance.
Adrian Wyard is a Seattle-based visual artist, and former designer & program manager at Microsoft. He has over 20 years experience working in digital media, including computer graphics, photography & videography, as well as software design. Adrian also has a Masters degree in the history of science from Oxford University, and has been a longtime appreciator of classical music.
Pictures at an Exhibition was recorded live at the Auburn Performing Arts Center on October 13, 2019 to an enthusiastic audience. “Their ebullience was felt on stage inspiring us to perform at great heights,” says Music Director Wesley Schulz. Now, for a limited time, you have another chance to see that performance.
