Chamber Orchestra with Guest Artist Donna Vince- 2/24/13

The Webster University Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Dr. Paul Davis, continues its 2012-13 season with a 7 p.m. concert on Feb. 24, 2013, at the Concert Hall of the Community Music School at Webster University.  

The Chamber Orchestra will open the program with two works from the Baroque era repertoire. The first piece is a concerto grosso composed in c. 1700 by Arcangelo Corelli. This work represents what is often considered to be the pinnacle of Italian concerto grosso style. The second piece is the concerto for harp composed by Georg Frideric Handel in 1736 for the London celebration known as Alexander's Feast. 
 
The orchestra will then feature faculty member Ken Kulosa on cello, performing Astor Piazzolla's “Le Grand Tango.” The Argentinean composer wrote this work in 1982, taking the traditional dance music of the tango and transforming it with elements of jazz and complex counterpoint. The orchestra closes the performance with the brilliant opening movement of Franz Josef Haydn's Symphony No. 100, known as the “Military” symphony.
 
Admission to the concert is $3 for the general public, and free for members of the Webster University community. For more information, call 314-968-7040 or the Fine Arts Hotline at 968-7128.
