Lexington Community Orchestra presents music by Tschaikowsky, Haydn - November 15 - free!

The Lexington Community Orchestra will present music by Tschaikowsky and Haydn at a free concert next week!

The performance is November 15, 2009 at 3:00 pm, at the Singletary Center for the Arts.

Violinist Kimberly Robertson told me about the performance a few months ago, and was kind enough to follow up recently.  

Robertson joined the orchestra in 1994, and states that since joining the orchestra, she has developed a new appreciation for music. "I have studied the violin with Daniel Mason, Margie Karp and Doratea Hoffman at the University of Kentucky, however, in April of 2007, I was very excited that the orchestra collaborated with Daniel Mason, performing Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D. This was one of my favorite concerts because I was a student of Daniel Mason for several years."

She adds, "Something unique about the orchestra is that we have collaborated with local musicans, composers and organizations. In the past we have collaborated with Central Kemtucky Youth Orchestra, Eastern Kentucky University and Asbury College. We have collaberated with local musicians Daniel Mason, Benjamin Karp, William Cooper and performed original compositions by Gilbert Roller and Joseph Baber."

The Orchestra's Director of Music is Jeremy Mullholland and Assistant Conductor is Lorne Dechtenburg. Music for the concert will be Capriccio Italien by Peter Tschaikowsky conducted by Lorne Dechtenburg and Symphony No. 101 (also known as the Clock Symphony) by Joseph Haydn, conducted by Jeremy Mullholland.
