Redlands Community Orchestra plays Franck and Weill
March 12, 2017 3:00 pm
Redlands High School Clock Auditorium, Redlands
The Redlands Community Orchestra continues its 2016-2017 season with César Franck’s brooding Symphony in D minor at 3pm March 12 at Redlands High School’s Clock Auditorium. The concert will be conducted by James Benanti and is free of charge and family friendly. No tickets are necessary. Approximately 60 all-volunteer musicians of all ages will play string, woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments in the concert.
The concert also features and Kurt Weill’s spunky Little Threepenny Music, which will be performed by the orchestra’s wind section. The piece also calls for a few instruments not typically included in orchestral music, including the saxophone, the banjo, and the bandoneon, which is similar to an accordion.
The Redlands Community Orchestra was founded in September 2013 as an outlet for amateur musicians in the Redlands area to play orchestral music together for fun. It is an independent nonprofit community organization devoted to sharing the joy of music making, engaging our audience, and enriching the cultural life of our community through artistic expression.
The concert is sponsored by the Redlands High School Instrumental Music Department.
