The Symphony of SETX – French Pairings at Julie Rogers Theatre Overview: Our season concludes with a concert of pairings by French composers. Pairings focus on two subjects: Samson and Delilah, Daphnis and Chloe, and the artistic pairing of orchestra and chorus, represented by the Faure Requiem. The Bacchanal, perhaps the most often played section of Saint Saen’s opera, Samson and Delilah begins with a sensuous dance that draws Samson into Delilah’s arms, only to be tricked as she cuts his hair. The balance of the piece is quite fiery in that he calls upon the gods to restore his powers. One of the greatest scores of ballet writing in the twentieth century is Ravel’s Daphnis and Chloe. Chloe, in the first two scenes of this ballet, is abducted by a group of pirates.

The SteelDrivers at Jefferson Theatre Award winning bluegrass band The SteelDrivers will perform at the Jefferson Theatre, Thursday, March 28, 2019. The SteelDrivers’ brand of bluegrass – intense, dark, poetic, and inescapably human – is a refreshing reminder of the timeless power of stringband music, and is captured perfectly on The SteelDrivers. Produced by Nashville ace Luke Wooten, The SteelDrivers was recorded mostly live on the studio floor, vocals and all. Its songs grapple with classic themes of regret, love, and redemption, from the escalating prison lament of “Midnight Train to Memphis” to the chilling murderer’s plea encapsulated in “If It Hadn’t Been for Love.” “East Kentucky Home” is a timeless traditional bluegrass lament, with its strains of homesickness, loss, and abandonment, but ingeniously reinvented with off-kilter rhythmic accents and a decidedly contemporary chord progression.
