Upcoming performance slated for community orchestra

Publication Date

The Union College and Community Orchestra, conducted by Hilary Tann, the John Howard Payne Professor of Music, will be performing in Memorial Chapel at 3 p.m., Sunday, April 9.

The concert, "Northern Landscapes," brings together works by Tann, Sibelius and Dvorak. Dvorak's Seventh Symphony in D minor is sometimes considered his greatest, although the "New World" Symphony is better known. The Seventh Symphony is extraordinarily lyrical and dramatic with a lilting third movement reminiscent of Czech folk melodies.

The concert is free and open to the public.
