Warren Philharmonic Orchestra to Perform at 2016 Student Concerts
2013 audience members
The Warren Philharmonic Orchestra continues its outreach to area third through eighth grade students by sponsoring instructional concerts for students at Lakeview High School Auditorium in Cortland on the morning of October 27, 2016. These live performances encourage students to discover the thrill of classical music and the instruments, performers and composers that enrich our lives.
The concerts were free to students from Trumbull-area schools. Reservation details were sent to principals. The orchestra performed excerpts from the fall public concert on the theme MAGIC TREATS!Students experienced works by Saint-Saëns (Dance Macabre), Copland (Hoe Down from Rodeo), Grieg (In the Hall of the Mountain King from Peer Gynt Suite), Bizet (Toreador Song from Carmen, with soloistBrian Keith Johnson, baritone) and Bruch (Finale: allegro energico from Violin Concerto No. 1, with soloist Joseph Kromholz, violin).
"Skeletons, rattling bones, dancing cowboys, a singing bullfighter, the soaring beauty of a solo violin -- Welcome to our special MAGIC TREATS! school concerts made just for you!" explained Susan Davenny Wyner, Warren Philharmonic Orchestra's music director and conductor. "Our orchestra has over 50 professional musicians who play over 60 different musical instruments. At the concert you will meet all the instruments of the orchestra and hear the stories behind the music."
Notes for teachers preparing their students for a concert experience, along with accompanying CD recordings, were delivered to Trumbull County grade 3-8 schools. Students and teachers were encouraged to participate in the 2016 Art in Music Contest where students illustrate their interpretations of 2016 concert selections.
