Good evening witches and magicians and wizards of all ages! Welcome to this evening’s musical performance of Witch, Please!
This fornight has Marcelle “in the field” interviewing Konstantine Kurelias and Amanda Brace, two staff members of the Winspear Centre, about the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra’s enchanting production of The Music of Harry Potter! As a special treat, you’ll also hear Marcelle debrief the performance with longtime friend and basically brother Stephen Tchir—a Master of Music and member of the band The Provincial Archive.
As always, don’t forget to listen all the way through for our latest #trywitches tournament challenge and the answer to this episode’s #witchpleasetellme question!
In this episode you’ll hear a LOT of music, including tracks from Kesha’s new album Rainbow, which is streaming for free on Spotify; Christopher O’Riley’s piano cover of Radiohead’s “Airbag”; selections from the many Harry Potter tunes (all of which can be found on YoutTube but, honestly, do petition your local Symphony Orchestra to perform the music if they can!); and a few classical classics that are 100% in the public domain we swear. AND we enthusiastically recommend that you check out the books of N.K. Jemisin for more life-changing fantasy.
Good gravy it’s after 4am. xoxo
