Performances December 16 at 10 am and 6:30 pm to feature music of Haydn, Copland

Two works separated by centuries, yet connected by a shared perspective on the human spirit. Haydn’s 43rd Symphony is a delightful work of exuberance, deep reflection, humor, and folksy comfort. We can say the exact same thing about Aaron Copland’s quintessentially American Appalachian Spring Ballet, heard here in its original chamber version. A heartwarming concert on a (potentially) chilly December day!

Inspired by the gilded-age intimacy of the Victoria Theater, the Demirjian Chamber Orchestra Series provides the Dayton Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra with an opportunity to show off musical works specially written to sound their best in smaller settings. On Friday, December 16 – at two separate performances (10:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.) – DPO Assistant Conductor Patrick Reynolds will conduct music that dances across three centuries, from the baroque to the modern, and from Europe to the United States.

First, Reynolds conducts the chamber orchestra version of Haydn’s Symphony No. 43, once referred to as “…the Austrian chamber symphony par excellence.” Haydn’s Symphony No. 43 wowed members of the court of Louis XVI as well as royalty of various other European kingdoms.

Then the DPO Chamber Orchestra sails across the Atlantic to America, to the “…pioneer celebration in spring around a newly-built farmhouse in the Pennsylvania hills in the early part of the last century,” depicted in Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring Ballet.

The Demirjian Chamber Orchestra Series concerts are casual and easygoing, as witnessed by the fact that DPO concert partners provide refreshments before each performance. For the 10:00 a.m. performance, concert partners Boston Stoker and Mill Ridge Village will provide complimentary coffee and doughnuts, and – for the 6:30 p.m. performance – concert partner Boston’s Bistro at the Gypsy will provide complimentary pizza!
