Genesis – Capture the Moment
87.263, 8th Place
The performers of Genesis presented a highly engaging music-meets-history lesson with their program that chronicled some of the finest moments in history – the ones that have established the legacy of humanity at large, as well as the moments that have managed to dwell in the darker end of the spectrum. The line’s careful attention to musical detail and making certain they captured the spirit of each profound moment – from the triumph and sense of pride of Neil Armstrong landing on the moon; Martin Luther King’s prolific “I Have A Dream” speech, the pitfalls of The Great Depression; and the productive bustled The Industrial Revolution. The ensemble was adept at conveying each segment not only musically, but from a communication standpoint the show definitely hit home.
