Spring is just around the corner, and the San Jose Wind Symphony — like Tennyson’s young man’s fancy — “lightly turns to thoughts of love.”
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, “All You Need Is Love” features popular love songs and romantic music from well-known operas and ballets. Special guests for the afternoon are vocalists Susan Powers, lyric soprano, and Michael Taylor, baritone, performing the music of George and Ira Gershwin. Powers and Taylor will sing “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “’S Wonderful,” “Someone to Watch Over Me” and other Gershwin favorites.
The featured instrumental work on the program is a suite from Sergei Prokofiev’s ballet Romeo and Juliet. From the world of opera, selections include “Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral” from Wagner’s Lohengrin, “Love Scene” from Puccini’s La Bohème and the “Love Duet” from Hanson’s Merry Mount. The program also features a medley of love songs by the Beatles and a lovely Sousa march, The Fairest of the Fair.
