Performing Arts Series: The Moanin’ Frogs
September 26 at 7:30 pm PDT$5 – $37
The University of Nevada, Reno Performing Arts Series presents the Moanin’ Frogs, an all-sax sextet playing classical, ragtime and pop music with flair. Travel the musical spectrum via this saxophone sextet’s rousing collection of familiar classical, ragtime, jazz, and pop music. Unfailingly entertaining, the conservatory-trained ensemble delivers technically precise performances with engaging choreography. For six saxophonists to achieve full symphonic sound while literally leaping from the joyous “Hassehen” (“Wedding Dance”) to the comical “Yakety Sax” (also known as The Benny Hill Show theme song) to Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Flight of the Bumblebee” makes for a uniquely memorable show. Audience favorites include Mozart’s “Overture to The Marriage of Figaro,” ragtime classic “Laf’n Sax,” and Freddie Mercury’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
