Pops Series 3 Don't Give Yourself Away-The Music of Joni Mitchell
March 3, 2018
Vince Mendoza, conductor
Sarah Slean, vocalist
In the early 2000s, arranger and conductor Vince Mendoza went in to the studio with Joni Mitchell to record two albums: “Both Sides Now” and “Travelogue” – the SSO is thrilled to present Don’t Give Yourself Away to celebrate the music of Joni Mitchell.
Joni Mitchell’s career crossed musical boundaries, challenged musical ideas, and spoke to the human race in an intimate, personal, political, and profound way. One of the true maverick’s of musical arts, her music and lyrics had a lasting impact on generations of music makers and music lovers.
It is a pleasure to present the first concert experience of these arrangements with their arranger on stage with us. The night is dedicated to the iconic Joni Mitchell in gratitude for the inspiration she has given the musical community.
