Dynamic Variation:

Scotch on the Strings

Nov 5, 2021


Spend a merry evening with the Arapahoe Phil exploring the influence of Scotland on classical music.

Travel the beautiful, rolling landscape of Scotland through Mendelssohn’s Scottish Symphony. Feel the rhythm of Scottish folk music in Malcolm Arnold’s “Four Scottish Dances,” and hear a legendary epic in Scottish composer Thea Musgrave’s “Song of the Enchanter.” Then raise a glass with Brahm’s “Academic Festival Overture”- an irreverent potpourri of drinking songs written for a university that awarded Brahms an honorary doctorate. From toe-tappers to glorious melodies, this concert has it all!
