On Friday, April 20, the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra, based in Wheeling, West Virginia, presented “Blues in G Minor” with dynamic Canadian vocalist and entertainer Shakura S’Aida.
S’Aida was a hit at the Heritage Music Blues Fest in Wheeling in 2010 and the festival promoter saw the possibility for a collaboration with the WSO’s Pop Series. Fellow Canadian, composer Rob Teehan was brought in to do the arrangements for the blues-oriented program, along with Lance Anderson and Jeff Christmas. Anderson was also the guest conductor for the concert. The Tridelphia Middle School Jazz Band performed in the lobby prior to the concert.
Known for her high-energy performance and soaring vocals the combination of Shakura S’Aida had to be a treat for blues and symphony fans alike.
Blues Revue and BluesWax Photographer Dusty Scott was lucky enough to attend and on this week’s Photo Page he shares some of his photographs.
