Chamber Orchestra Concert
February 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The American Romanian Festival once again presents the Wayne State University Orchestra, joined by WSU faculty and musicians from the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, in an evening of music guaranteed to help you travel over plains and borders. The first part of the program features Arthur Foote’s melodious and dynamic Serenade for Strings, followed by Exorcisme, a work for flute and chamber orchestra by Romanian composer Remus Georgescu and featuring WSU alumnus Shantanique Moore, currently a fellow with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. The concert continues with the Almajan Suite by Remus Georgescu and selections from Old American Songs by Aaron Copland, featuring Wayne State University’s newly appointed voice professor Jonathan Lasch. The concerts ends with Constantin Silvestri’s melodious, playful, and fiery Three Pieces for String Orchestra.
This concert is given as part of this season’s American Romanian Festival.
