SAINT JOSEPH SYMPHONY HOLDS SERIES OF CONCERTS
St. Joseph, Mo. -Nov. 10, 2010-The Saint Joseph Symphony will be holding a chamber music concert at 2 p.m. Sunday Nov. 14, at the First Presbyterian Church, 301 N. 7th St. The program will include Koechlin's Quatre Petites Pices, Mozert's Quintet in E Flat Major and Mendelssohn's Sextet for Piano and Strings.
This concert is the first of three that will feature small groups of some of the Symphony's finest players, performing intricate music in more intimate settings. For those accustomed to the large works performed by a full orchestra, the new series creates a different atmosphere with music rarely performed in the area.
Rico McNeela, symphony music director and director of orchestral activities at Missouri Western State University, will be performing with the group. Also performing will be Chun-Chien Chuang, symphony concertmaster; Andrew Holmes, violist, James Ke, cellist; Robert Scagliotti, double bassist; John Villaveces, pianist; and Elizabeth Dunning and Peter Jilka, horn players.
General admission is $23. Tickets are available at saintjosephsymphony.org or at 816-233-7701. Tickets may also be purchased at the Symphony office or at the door.
