Musicians of the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra in Wyoming.

In Thursday’s (1/18) Wyoming Tribune Eagle, Carrie Haderlie writes, “The Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra will continue its season-long exploration of outer space with a show called ‘A Ceiling Full of Stars’ this month…. CSO’s Music Director and Conductor William Intriligator said, ‘During this concert, we have a piece of music that sounds incredibly beautiful and outer-space like…. a really cool piece that is only percussion. It’s very rare that we present a piece where we don’t have the strings, we don’t have the brass, we don’t have the woodwinds.’… The show … Jan. 27 at the Cheyenne Civic Center, includes works by Florence Price, Schubert, Tyson and Romanski … The Heartland Marimba Quartet will join CSO percussionists to present American composer Blake Tyson’s ‘A Ceiling Full of Stars,’ written exclusively for percussion. The Heartland Marimba Quartet will close the evening’s performance with Concerto for Marimba Quartet and Orchestra by American composer Kevin Romanski, alongside the CSO. Romanski’s piece is one of the first concertos written for a marimba quartet and full orchestra. The neo-Romantic work showcases the ways in which the marimbas interact with each other, as well as the rest of the orchestra.”
