Dayton Philharmonic Junior Strings Orchestra to perform works by Mozart, and Haydn at free recital
On Sunday March 19, at 3pm, Dayton Philharmonic Junior Strings Orchestra (JSO), conducted by Karen Young, will perform in a free recital at Kettering Seventh-Day Adventist Church, 3939 Stonebridge Road, in Kettering, Ohio.
The third of six free concerts known collectively as Amadeus Unbound given at Greater Dayton and Northern Cincinnati area venues, the Kettering recital is part of the NCR Miracle of Mozart Festival, the DPO’s celebration of the 250th birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Conductor Karen Young will lead the JSO – which consists of area string students, grades 6-12 – in performance of Mozart’s Symphony No. 29 in A major K. 201, Haydn’s Symphony No. 1 in D major, and a piece by Corelli. Jerry Taylor, organist at the Kettering Seventh-Day Adventist Church, will also perform three of Mozart’s church sonatas for organ and strings. The festival includes free community events such as this one, as well as a Mozart Piano Concerto Series and regular classical season concerts.
The Amadeus Unbound part of the festival is designed to “…take Mozart out for a ‘free ride,’ so everyone in the area can experience the amazing variety and majesty of the great composer’s work,” says Neal Gittleman, DPO Music Director.
The recital will be followed by a reception with Ms. Young and Mr. Taylor. For more information, call the DPO business office at 937-224-3521. A full calendar is available at: http://www.daytonphilharmonic.com/content.jsp?articleId=311
