Lyrical Strings

Join us for this beautiful string orchestra program, opening with George Walker’s expressive chamber work Lyric for Strings, written after the death of the composer’s grandmother while he was still a student at the Curtis Institute of Music.  The concert will feature soloist Eric Kutz, Professor of Cello at the University of Maryland, performing one of Haydn’s masterpieces, Cello Concerto in C Major.  The program will conclude with the stunning Sunrise Mass by Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo, written for string orchestra and chorus. The powerful work evolves and changes in sound, and is a metaphor for a spiritual journey.
