*Announcing the 2012-2013 Saint Mary's Chamber Orchestra Season!*
We are very excited to announce the new season repertoire for our performances in Figliulo Recital Hall during the 2012-2013 school year. The season will begin with "The Sounds of Christmas", featuring Baroque masterpieces that are most appropriate for the Advent Season - "Christmas Concerto" by Corelli and Vivaldi's "Winter" from his ever-popular "Four Seasons". The Chamber Orchestra will also send you special season's greetings by performing the breath-taking "O Magnum Mysterium" by Lauridsen, the light-hearted "Sleigh Ride" by Mozart and the humurous "Farewell" Symphony by Haydn. We also have a special guest - Dr. Kyle Black from the Modern and Classical Department will be reciting inspiring sonnets in various languages between compositions - a truly exciting and unique experience awaits!
The Spring 2013 Semester will begin with a showcase of "The Genius of Mozart", featuring special visiting artists conducting and performing early masterpieces by the immortal Mozart - from his opera, serenade to sinfonia concertante for violin and viola soloists. Our 2012-13 season will end with a "Bach Family Festival", including a variety of works composed by members of the distinguished Bach family, in addition to a dynamic collaboration with our very own Saint Mary's Choir.
We hope you will join us for all these exciting performances, and encourage all who are interested in performing to contact SMCO Music Director, Dr. David Leung (email@example.com) for details.
