The Converse Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Greg Lindahl, will perform on Monday, March 16 at 7:30 p.m. in Daniel Recital Hall. Audiences will be able to have a full orchestra experience in a wonderful intimate setting, and music lovers will not want to miss this opportunity to be surrounded and bathed in the beautiful music of an excellent orchestra.
The concert will open with Adagio in sol minore by Giazotto, based on a tune by Albinoni and composed for strings and organ. The tune is very well known, and will allow audiences to luxuriate in the rich and sensuous sound of a familiar melody on the organ and strings. Converse student Audrey Rose will perform on the Schantz organ.
The second piece on the program is Overture, Scherzo and Finale, Op. 52, by Schumann. This work is composed of three short character pieces that express Romantic passion in a chamber music setting. The final selection of the evening is Symphony No. 1 in C minor by Felix Mendelssohn. Lindahl says of the work, “The Symphony No. 1 is filled with the energy and ideas of the young, adolescent Mendelssohn.”
