Chamber Orchestra: Symphony of Diversity

April 27, 2018 - 7:30 PM
Belk Theater, Robinson Hall

The UNC Charlotte Chamber Orchestra, led by Jonathan Govias, celebrates the many voices of the Americas in its second "Symphony of Diversity" concert. A human and musical representation of this state, nation, and hemisphere, the performance showcases the diversity that continues to elevate us socially, economically, and artistically.  More than 50% of the repertoire is by women composers, including the rarely-heard Piano Concerto by Clara Schumann, and the American premiere of a new work by a leading composer. Internationally distinguished pianist Sara Davis Buechner will grace the stage for the Clara Schumann Piano Concerto, and the Northwest School of the Arts Orchestra will join the UNC Charlotte Chamber Orchestra for three of the works. 


Elmer Bernstein: Overture to Magnificent Seven
Clara Schumman: Piano Concerto in A minor, Op.7
    Sara Davis Buechner, piano
Jose Pablo Moncayo: Huapango
Christine Donkin: "Frosted Pane" from Four Poems for Orchestra (US Premiere)
Stella Sung: Chorale from the Partita for Orchestra  (Erica Hefner, Guest Conductor)
Aaron Copland: "Hoedown" from Rodeo

Tickets are $8 and free for all CoA+A students.
