Lexington Symphony presents Music for Brass, Strings, and Chorus
February 8, 2014
Join Lexington Symphony as it presents a very special program featuring various sections of the orchestra performing music that is uniquely their own. Lexington Symphony’s fantastic brass section plays the music of Susato (La Mourisque) and Gabrieli (Brass Ensemble), evoking the grandeur of an age where brass ruled. The strings play three works by Arensky (Variations on a Theme by Tchaikovsky), Tchaikovsky (Serenade for Strings), and the mysterious composer known as Peter Warlock (Capriole Suite). Rounding out the evening’s program, we follow up on the success of the new work we commissioned from composer Michael Gandolfi last season entitled Fortune, Fate, and The Fool with a joint performance — with Lexington High School’s Chamber Choir — of his beautiful Winter Light for chorus and strings.
