Mysterioso!: A Pops Concert Of Music, Magic, Mayhem & Mirth!
was originally conceived by David Sandy Productions, Inc. in early 2008.
David Sandy approached Ty Johnson, Senior Director
of Pops Programming and Presentations for the
Indianapolis Symphony and Producer of the National
Symphonic Pops Consortium
www.symphonicpopsconsortium.com who agreed that this presentation would be perfect for a symphony orchestra.
Renown Maestro Jack Everly
graciously agreed to accept this project as principal conductor.
Through a collaborative effort, Mysterioso! magically appeared!
In addition to an unbelievable music score and orchestral arrangements,
this musical, magical production features the magical talents
award-winning of illusionist Joseph Gabriel, the hysterical comedy
magic of Les Arnold & Dazzle, and the unbelievable magical costume
transformations of David & Dania. Additionally, Broadway star
Christina Bianco amazes with her show-stopping vocal talents and
uncanny comedy impressions and Charles Richard Lester provides eerie
music on the rarely-seen theremin instrument.
The show is much more than a symphony pops concert or a magic show...
it's a perfect melding of the musical arts and the magical visual arts.
Magic actually is seen within the orchestral performance itself.
The conductor himself defies gravity, people vanish into thin air, beautiful
birds materialize out of nowhere, people magically change clothes instantaneously,
musical instruments levitate and vanish, and so much more! Even the music
performed includes a magical theme with selections including Bewitched, Bothered &
Bewildered, That Ol' Black Magic, Defying Gravity, Do You Believe in Magic?,
We're Off To See The Wizard, Magic Moments, the theme from the Bewitched television
show, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo, Hedwig's Theme, Supercalifragalisticexpialidoucious,
the theme from the I Dream Of Jeannie television show, I'm Flying, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, and many more!
"I am so proud to have conceived this wonderful production," comments David Sandy.
"Having my vision come to life with some of the world's greatest magicians and musicians,
plus working with Maestro Everly and Symphonic Producer Ty Johnson is a dream come true."
This show debuted with the Indianapolis Symphony on October 30-November 1, 2009.
Subsequent performances will follow with the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, the
Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa, Canada,
the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, and others. It's a family-friendly symphony concert
with broad appeal to adults, seniors, children and teens. The show is available
to orchestras nationally and internationally.
