Squawky Tunes Season
We kick off 2022 with a season celebrating the music of Raymond Scott, and in particular Carl Stalling’s adaptions known and loved from the the Looney Tunes cartoons. “Twilight in Squawky” is an arrangement by our conductor Carl Polke of the Scott tune “Twilight in Turkey” and later on in the season we’ll turn our attention to another piece of his, “Powerhouse”.
The “Loony” theme can also be seen as a nod to the the travails of running a community orchestra into the third year of a pandemic … only possible with the support and forbearance of our members and creative persistence from our conductor. With the upcoming relaxing of mask rules we can’t wait to be able to all play together again in March!
