Chamber Orchestra Concert, Nov. 11

The Yellow Springs Chamber Orchestra with soloists Jennifer Gilchrist, soprano and Seth Kaplan, cello; James Johnston, conductor will perform on Sunday, November 11, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church.

The concert is free. Contributions to benefit Community Music (of which the orchestra is a member) are warmly accepted.

The Yellow Springs Chamber Orchestra performs music of the season by composers of the Romantic period.  Soprano Jennifer Gilchrist will sing Schubert's famous song "Der Erlkonig" - a spooky tale of a man and his young son confronting supernatural forces.  Antioch student Seth Kaplan will perform as soloist in Max Bruch's haunting setting of the "Kol Nidrei," a traditional part of the Yom Kippur service.  The orchestra will also play Felix Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 5 ("The Reformation"), comissioned for the 400th anniversary of Martin Luther's reforms. Come and experience these powerful expressions of the Romantic spirit!
