The Two Rivers Chamber Orchestra is presenting the exciting new program “Gift of Fire” on Nov. 16, at 8 p.m. in the Frank Arts Center.
The orchestra is composed of a diverse group of musicians from the Baltimore-Washington area, many of whom are talented members of the Shepherd University Music Department faculty.
The concert will feature the talents of cellist Stephen Czarkowski who will perform Haydn’s “Cello Concerto No. 1 in C Major.”
“Gift of Fire” centers on the concept of creation and explores the idea of sharing the fire of humanism stolen from the gods. Three of the compositions from the program are “Prelude to the Creation” by Haydn, “Concerto No.1 in C Major for Cello and Orchestra” by Haydn, and “Symphony No. 3, Op. 55, Eroïca” by Beethoven.
The Two Rivers Chamber Orchestra appeals to all audience members regardless of their taste in music or exposure to classical genre. The program usually features selections from well known classical composers but also includes at least one new composition that appeals to a wider audience. Enjoy an evening of cultural enrichment with the Two Rivers Chamber Orchestra.
