BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Fjords. Trolls. And the Vikings. As our Florida summer heats up, the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra offers a cool musical journey to enchanted lands carved by glaciers.

On Saturday, July 23 at 7 p.m., SCSO will present a Scandinavian Road Trip at the Scott Center for the Performing Arts at Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy, 5625 Holy Trinity Drive north of Melbourne.

Scandinavian Road Trip rolls out of the station with Hans Christian Lumbye’s ‘Copenhagen Steam Railway Galop’, a famous work that faithfully recreates the sounds of a purring train.

Then composer Carl Nielsen evokes the romantic intrigue of a glittering masquerade ball in his overture to the Danish opera Maskarade.

“A Confession of the Soul” is what Jean Sibelius called his Symphony No. 2, a work that gave hope to the Finnish people struggling with Russian oppression.

Rounding out the trip to Northern Europe is Dane Launy Grøndahl’s Trombone Concerto, performed by Miami-based Thomas McKee. A classically trained tenor trombonist, McKee is also a teacher, composer and arranger.

$30 tickets are available through the orchestra’s website at SpaceCoastSymphony.org or Marine Bank & Trust in Suntree. Tickets at the door are $35.

Spectators aged 18 and under or with a student card are admitted free to all SCSO concerts.

Passes for the entire 2022-23 performing season are available, along with “flex packs” of tickets, good for five subscription concerts.

Space Coast Symphony Orchestra Conductor and Artistic Director Aaron T. Collins is looking forward to introducing Miami trombonist Thomas McKee on the Scandinavian road trip.

“We are fortunate to have many high caliber musicians at SCSO,” said Collins. “And Thomas is a great example.

The trombone concerto he performs clearly shows the listener what makes him a real star.

Spectators aged 18 and under or with a student card are admitted free to all SCSO concerts.
