Godzilla Eats Las Vegas! at the Little Rock Wind Symphony

LRWS Logo

WHO:                         Little Rock Wind Symphony

WHAT:                      Spring Concert: Godzilla Eats Las Vegas!

WHEN:                      7:30 p.m., Thurs., April 20, 2017

WHERE:                   Second Presbyterian Church,

600 Pleasant Valley Dr., Little Rock, AR, 72227

Godzilla - 9

BACKGROUND:     If the Pied Piper can lure the rats away from Hamelin, the Little Rock Wind Symphony can soothe Godzilla from eating Las Vegas.

The spectacle starts at 7:30 at Second Presbyterian Church at 600 Pleasant Valley Dr. in Little Rock on Thurs., April 20. Tickets are $10 per adult, $8 per senior, and students are free. To purchase, call 501-666-0777 or e-mail info@lrws.net.

Godzilla Eats Las Vegas! is the brainchild of Eric Whitacre, conductor and composer, and commissioned by the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Whitacre graduated from the institution after seven years of study, and as he explained, he was ready to eat Las Vegas by the time he was finished.

“I thought it would be a blast to do something completely ridiculous,” he said. “The players are called upon to scream in terror, dress like Elvises (Elvi), and play in about thirty different styles from mambo to cheesy lounge music. The audience follows a ‘script’ that I wrote simulating a campy, over the top Godzilla movie (is there any other kind?).”

The Little Rock Wind Symphony performers will go crazy: wear showgirl costumes, Elvis costumes, act out scenes on stage and a few other surprises.

“Godzilla Eats Las Vegas! is a fun way for the Little Rock Wind Symphony to showcase the range of music we can perform,” said Israel Getzov, music director and conductor of the Little Rock Wind Symphony. “It’s a great way to engage kids, adults, music enthusiasts as well as newcomers.”

For more information about Godzilla Eats Las Vegas! or the Little Rock Wind Symphony, visit http://www.lrwindsymphony.org or contact Brenda Barber, executive director, at 501-666-0777 or bsbarber@lrws.net.
