Crozet Community Orchestra

CCO

The Crozet Community Orchestra is back!

Hannah and Samuel Miller, students at Henley Middle School, will be performing the Concerto for Two Violins in d minor by J.S. Bach with the Crozet Community Orchestra conducted by Philip Clark at Crozet Baptist Church on April 9th at 7:00 p.m.  

Hannah and Samuel, students of Leonora Reesor, have been featured on NBC29 and at the Temple Square Christmas Concert International Broadcast, and three times have been invited to play at Carnegie Hall.

On the same program will be the world premier of Hafliði Hallgrimsson’s Hymn at the Rock.  The composer says of the piece:

“I often spent time as a boy with one ear close to a flat surface of a large rock, on the outskirts of my hometown Akureyri in the north of Iceland, hoping to hear  “Álfasöngur” (elf songs).  Alas, I never heard a sound, but I lived in hope. The title of my arrangement of the old Icelandic Hymn harks back to that experience, and can be seen as a kind of a compensation for having missed out on the unearthly singing of the elves.”

Also on the program will be the English Folk Song Suite by Vaughan Williams, the Viola Concerto by Telemann with Philip Clark as soloist, and music from Verdi’s Nabucco, including the famous Hebrew Slaves chorus.

Free admission to the concert, so get there early to save your seat!

As always, admission is free.  Donations gratefully accepted.

The Crozet Community Orchestra presented its first concert on December 10. 2013.  Under the directorship of Philip Clark, the orchestra rehearses in Gillum Hall at the Crozet Baptist on St. George Avenue.  For more information about the orchestra, and to learn about sponsoring scholarships, please contact Denise Murray at 434-987-5517 or 434-760-7039, email her at murrden@gmail.com, or call Philip Clark at 434-979-3343.
