Sunday afternoon, April 1, 2012, I will performing with the Blue Ridge Orchestra at our An Overture to Spring Poster concert. The performance starts at 4 PM and is at the Diana Wortham Theater in downtown Asheville, NC. If you’re in the area, please come check out a nice program of music with a spring theme.
There are three pieces on this concert. I get to play on Dvorak’s 8th Symphony and Sibelius’s Karelia Suite. There are four fine soloists, Arnold Brown on violin, Judi Lampert on flute, Pat Stone on oboe, and Casey Coppenbarger on trumpet. They will be performing on Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 2.
Under the direction of Milt Crotts, the Blue Ridge Orchestra is a community orchestra made up of mostly amateur players with a sprinkling of professionals in the group as well. I’ve been playing when I can with this group for several years now and also serving on the board of directors for a few. If you’re in Asheville this Sunday and looking to hear some classical music, stop on by.
