SPOTLIGHTING THE VIRTUOSITY of our esteemed musicians serves as inspiration for this robust program featuring pieces selected by members of the orchestra.

Harpist Kimberly Glennie shines on Claude Debussy’s Danses sacrée et profane, she says “These dances transport me to a mythical time and place. I love this piece because it gives voice to the magic and enchantment of the harp.”

Oboist Stephen Caplan demonstrates command of his instrument in Vaughan Williams’s Oboe Concerto. Caplan enthuses “This piece is one of my favorite works to play. It's the composer's highly personal response to World War II--beautiful, nostalgic, and intensely moving.”

Cellist Andrew Smith solos on C.P.E. Bach’s Cello Concerto in A Major and shares, “The charming Cello Concerto in A Major, though rarely programmed, is worthy of having its place in the standard repertory. The second movement, marked «mesto» (sad), is especially notable.”

Vaughan Williams’s Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis ends the evening. Featuring a rising, organ-like melody used to create somber effect, the piece was used in the 2003 film, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.
