Love, Death, and Madness

Sunday, June 19, 2022 at 3:00PM

Sopranos Mary Anne Kruger and Amy Cofield both live in Brevard County. Separately, they have enjoyed international careers as opera singers. Together — they are the Space Coast Divas. Ms. Kruger has spent most of her career in Europe singing well over 40 glorious roles such as Madama Butterfly and Salome. Ms. Cofield has likewise performed in the U.S., Europe and Asia, often being sought for Violetta, the lead role in Verdi’s La Traviata. As Space Coast Divas, the pair will present Love, Death and Madness, featuring the works of Puccini, Verdi, Bellini, Offenbach, Strauss, Wagner and other master composers of the form. Accompanied by your Space Coast Symphony, the singers will perform a range of works through the Bel Canto and Romantic, to the Verismo and Modern periods to experience how love, death, and madness are portrayed through compelling characters, lush music and soaring voices.

America The Beautiful

Saturday, June 25, 2022 at 2PM

Summer wouldn’t have the same sizzle without a patriotic concert by your Space Coast Symphony Wind Orchestra. This red, white and blue concert will honor all those who have worn our nation’s uniform. This all-American program will showcase our national heritage, as conductor Aaron T. Collins directs the wind orchestra with music by Richard Rodgers, Mark Piszczek, Eric Whitacre, Lee Greenwood, and marches from “The March King,” John Philip Sousa. The concert features Eric Whitacre’s thrilling Ghost Train. In this highly programmatic work, Eric transforms a story from American folklore of a supernatural locomotive that roars throughout the Western U.S. Rich in special effects and unique compositional techniques, this dynamic piece creates vivid aural images as the train leaves the station and passes through a varied landscape. Rounding out the program is Adam Gorb’s Yiddish Dances. Gorb’s brilliant classic combines his passion for wind orchestra and klezmer (the folk music of Yiddish-speaking people) with his theatrical flair in five traditionally based dances. Thrilling, touching, affectionate, endlessly inventive, vividly scored, and vibrant, this exciting work will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Together, Jake & Sky are breaking down barriers on their mission to show the world that having a diagnosis doesn’t mean you aren’t capable of great things. The star duo was recently invited to perform for the Mayor and thirteen commissioners of Miami-Dade County, The Orange Blossom Festival, the ‘Broken Boy’ movie premiere, and The Special Olympics 2022 USA Games.
