The Oak Ridge Symphony Takes Us On An Adventure Around The World And Through Time
Melony Dodson talks with music director, Dan Allcott
This Saturday evening, November 20th at 7:30pm, the Oak Ridge symphony Orchestra presents Musical Soundscapes: a program featuring music that defines and creates a sense of place and time. Take a journey around the world or wherever your imagination takes you, as the symphony and Maestro Dan Allcott perform Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No.5, the “Adaptation Variations” by Japanese-American composer, Takuma Itoh, “Spielzeug Strassenbahn” by Jennifer Jolley, and “Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout” by Gabriela Lena Frank.
Three soloists will be featured in this performance: concertmaster, Karen Kartal (violin), ORSO principal flutist, Shelby Shankland, and guest harpsichordist, Malcolm Matthews. Learn more about the music, the composers, and the soloists in this interview with music director, Dan Allcott.
The concert will take place at First United Methodist Church of Oak Ridge. More information at http://orcma.org
