Symphony Orchestra      Lutz Hall

The LVC Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Guest Conductor, Dr. Brenda Leach presents a colorful program featuring winners of the Concerto-Aria Competition.  The first half of the concert will include Rossini's popular Overture La Gazza Ladra and Mozart's Horn Concerto no. 2 in E-flat Major, K. 417 with Rachel Yeater as soloist. In the second half of the concert, we take a musical journey to far away lands as heard in the Karelia Suite, op. 11 by Sibelius and the Tableaux de Provence by Paule Maurice.  The latter work, which will feature Kenneth Ayer, saxophone, is a highly descriptive five-movement piece. Paule Maurice was a prolific Parisian composer in the 20th century; her Tableaux de Provence is an important addition to repertoire for saxophone and symphony orchestra.
