The Lake Superior Chamber Orchestra will present the final concert of its 2015 season on July 23 at Weber Music Hall, University of Minnesota-Duluth. The program will feature a collaboration between the Lake Superior Chamber Orchestra and the Magic Smelt Puppet Troupe, both Duluth-based organizations. They will perform a new work for orchestra and shadow puppets based on a Persian fairy tale, specific tale as yet undetermined. The musical score will be created by Tehran composer, Hooshyar Khayam. The goal is to present a performance that is artistically compelling. We hope through this collaboration to broaden the audience base for two artistic enterprises not often joined together: puppetry and chamber orchestra.The artistic evaluation will be made by the project directors reflecting the response of participating musicians and puppet artists, audience members, Lake Superior Chamber Orchestra board members, and reviews in the media. The effort to broaden the audience bas of both organizations will be reflected in ticket sales and audience response.
