The Orchestra’s February 16 and 18 concerts feature two brilliant classical works and four amazing soloists. We are highly honored to be joined by renowned violinist,
– a frequently heard work consisting of a concerto for each season revealing the season’s moods and characteristic activities. Ms. Takayama is concertmaster of the Roanoke Symphony and the Williamsburg Symphonia, and an inspiring teacher, serving as Associate Professor and the Victor Brown Endowed Chair in Violin at Shenandoah University’s Shenandoah Conservatory in Winchester, VA.
The Orchestra’s two flutists, Ally Tarwater and Kevin Schwenk, teachers and popular performers here on the Shore, will solo in Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto IV, joined by Paul Kim on violin, the Orchestra’s music director/violinist. One of the most popular of Bach’s six Brandenburg concerti, the work is tuneful and soulful. Detailed program notes for both works will be provided at the performances.
The concert will be performed twice on Presidents’ weekend:
Friday, February 16 at 7:30 PM at Cokesbury Church in Onancock
Sunday, February 18 at 4:00 PM at Hungars Church in Bridgetown (Machipongo)
As always, concerts are free and open to the public, with donations most welcome.
Support for the orchestra is also provided by Town of Onancock, Virginia Commission for the Arts, United Way of Virginia’s Eastern Shore, and Friends of the Orchestra.
