This Friday, we have an action-packed Vivace
After a peaceful first hour, we'll celebrate the birthday of the ballet Sylvia by Leo Delibes at 7:00 am. At about 7:30 am, we'll celebrate the 236th birthday of the Star Spangled Banner as the flag of the United States and the 238th birthday of the US Army. Included in that celebration, I'll have a very rare recording of the composer Sergei Rachmaninoff himself playing the national anthem.
Then after another of Mozart's apocryphal symphonies and a visit to the world of operetta, we'll devote the final hour of this Friday's Vivace to a live concert by
Avery Waite (cello) and Fitz Gary (viola) from Music Feeds Us
will also be appearing in a kids concert on
Wednesday (June 12) at 4 pm, at the Gordon Avenue Library,
where they will perform "Carnival of the Animals", on
Thursday evening (June 13) at 7pm at The Bridge PAI, on
Saturday morning, 9am-11am, at an outreach performance at
the Charlottesville City Market, as well as their two main
concerts Saturday afternoon at Trinity Episcopal Church in
Staunton and Sunday afternoon (3 pm) at First Presbyterian
Church in Charlottesville.
Avery has performed on Sesame Street and solo
at the Lincoln Center, and is an extraordinarily talented cellist.
Please feel free to stop by
the studio and be part of the audience. And if you can manage a small
donation for the
Blue Ridge Food Bank, I know they'd be grateful. This should be fun!
I look forward to your company on Friday!
