March 30, 3 PM concert at Kettering Seventh Day Adventist Church is free

On Sunday, March 30 at 3 pm, the Dayton Philharmonic Junior String Orchestra will present a free concert at Kettering Seventh Day Adventist Church, the third in the Orchestra’s 2007-2008 Season.

Conductor Karen Young will open the program with Mozart’s delightful Divertimento in D Major, K. 136, written when he was only 16 years old. Benjamin Britten’s Simple Symphony, based on themes the composer had written as a boy and which he later developed and enlarged for string orchestra, follows. Britten gave the 20th-century work’s four movements some very alliterative and amusing titles: Boisterous Bouree, Playful Pizzicato, Sentimental Saraband, and Frolicsome Finale.

The JSO will end the concert with a new string adaptation of Rossini’s William Tell Overture, which includes the lovely original cello section introduction and ends with the well-known Lone Ranger theme, presented in its original exciting format, a real challenge for the JSO’s young players.

The JSO will repeat this concert for the residents of St. Leonard Retirement Community, to say “Thank You” for the use of rehearsal facilities there.

Junior String Orchestra members rehearse every Saturday from 9:30 am-12:00 pm, September – March. The Junior String Orchestra consists of 51 students in grades 6-12 representing 22 different schools in the Greater Dayton area. Membership in the Orchestra is through competitive audition.
