The Orchestra of the Eastern Shore’s Fall concerts will be on November 2nd and 4th.
Dr. Paul Kim, a professional conductor, violinist, composer, and music professor will lead the orchestra which includes flutes, clarinet, horns, harp, bassoon harpsichord, and trombone. The concert will feature the Overture to The Secret Marriage. This is a late 18th-century comic opera by Domenico Cimarosa, which was so wildly received at its premiere in Vienna that Emperor Leopold II ordered dinner for the performers and had the whole opera repeated right afterward.
The program will also include Mozart’s Symphony No. 25, featured in the film Amadeus, and Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto in G minor with Susan Ha as soloist. Susan is a professional pianist who serves on the faculty at Norfolk State University and is known locally for her performances with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra and Virginia Arts Festival.
The November 2nd concert will be held at Cokesbury Church in Onancock at 7:30 PM, and repeated on November 4th at Hungars Episcopal Church in Bridgetown at 4 PM. Concerts are free, however, donations are welcome.
