Salina Symphony hosts Non-Classical Club Night with electronic music

Salina Symphony hosts Non-Classical Club Night with electronic music
DJ and composer Gabriel Prokofiev will bring his skills to Salina for the Salina Symphony's Non-Classical Club Night on Nov. 4.

A unique opportunity for people in Salina to experience the intersection of classical and electronic music is coming, as the Salina Symphony is hosting a club night downtown next week.

The Non-Classical Club Night begins with doors opening at 8:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4 at The Warehouse, 500 N. Fifth St., and will feature music by composer and DJ Gabriel Prokofiev.

“His music is a really interesting intersection of classical and electronic,” said Adrianne Allen, executive director of the symphony.

Prokofiev, who will also be featured during the symphony’s Nov. 6 concert, “Romance,” is the grandson of prolific Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev, and is no stranger to what many would typically think of as symphonic music.

“His approach is very, very different (from his grandfather),” said Yaniv Segal, the music director and conductor of the Salina Symphony. “(Gabriel) grew up playing acoustic music in school bands and ended up playing some keyboards. When he was young, he got into electronic music and synthesizers, which kind of became his passion.”
