Stokowski Celebration Concerts - The creative voyage

May 01, 2012


In this post, Stage Director James Alexander introduces himself and invites you, the Philadelphia Orchestra audience, to explore some of the steps of his creative journey.

Taking us through some key moments of how he imagines his stagings for these four celebratory concerts, James shares what happens for him when he hears music, how he translates the images he conjures up, and how he communicates these to, and collaborates with, his key lighting, graphics, and special effects designers.

“Please join me on this and subsequent blog posts as I share with you some of my creative processes and offer you visual teasers of the extraordinary technological wizardry that will enhance your enjoyment of these concerts played by the Fabulous Philadelphians!”
