North Georgia Chamber Symphony to perform at First Presbyterian Church
The North Georgia Chamber Symphony will pack a wide range of music into its spring concert at 4 p.m. Sunday, May 21, at First Presbyterian Church in Gainesville.
The concert at 800 S. Enota Drive NE in Gainesville will begin with Aaron Copland’s Hoedown, from “Rodeo,” a rip-roaring gallop into a western barn dance.
Francis Poulenc’s Concerto for organ, string orchestra and timpani follows featuring guest artist Robert Lubin. This concerto swings from violent and fast to slow without breaks.
Next the symphony will play the “Adagio in G Minor” for strings and organ originally said to be written by Tomaso Albinoni, but now attributed to Remo Giazotto.
Then the symphony will play two tangos by Astor Piazzolla, “Oblivion” and “Libertango,” and “Por Una Cabeza” by Le Pera and Gardel. The concert will close with “Red” McLeods’ Wabash Cannonball.
Tickets are $15 with students admitted for free. Proceeds will benefit The North Georgia Chamber Symphony Inc.
