The Webster University Chamber Orchestra Presents a Diverse Program of Elegant Music
The Webster University Chamber Orchestra presents its season premier. The ensemble, comprised completely of Webster University students, performs significant symphonic repertoire. Artistic Director and Conductor of the Chamber Orchestra is Dr. Paul G. Davis. Guest conductors for this concert include Webster University Graduate Students Katherine Alexander, Michael Dunsmoor and Ron Robinson.
The repertoire for the evening includes a diverse program, opening with Beethoven’s Overture to “Coriolanus.” The orchestra will then perform the famous Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 by Johann Sebastien Bach. Featured will be Tony Morales on violin, and Webster University alumnae Paula Bernhardt and Amanda du Clos on flute. 2010 marks the 100th birth year of the popular American composer, Samuel Barber. The WUCO will perform movements from his “Serenade for Strings.” The program concludes with the romping Finale to Franz Josef Haydn’s “Symphony No. 88.”
Now beginning its second year, the Webster University Chamber Orchestra has quickly become an inspired and spirited performing ensemble. The concert promises to be an exciting experience of elegant music.
