Chamber Orchestra Performance This Sunday
December 1, 2016
The Wabash College Chamber Orchestra will perform in concert at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 4, in Salter Concert Hall in the Fine Arts Center.
Under the direction of Alfred Abel, the concert opens with the beloved overture to Rossini's opera, The Barber of Seville. It will be followed by a beautiful and imaginative version of the Scottish air, Loch Lomond, arranged for brass quintet by the chamber orchestra’s own principal trumpeter, Steve Parke. The concert will conclude with Tchaikovsky's most famous and popular symphonic work, Symphony #4 in F minor.
The Chamber Orchestra draws its members not only from the Wabash student body, but also from musicians on the faculty and staff, along with professional and amateur musicians from the surrounding community.
This Music Department concert is free and open to the public. Families are encouraged to attend this wonderful, audience-friendly introduction to great classical music.
