Chamber Orchestra Ogden will close its 2015-2016 concert season on May 7 with a program that will feature Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, combined with a silent auction of musical art, and a children’s art show. The auction will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by the concert at 7:30. Proceeds from the auction will be used to help offset the cost of summer camp attendance for a child who might not otherwise be able to attend.
The concert will open with Bizet’s Petite Suite, a collection of 5 from the set of 12 miniatures Bizet originally wrote for piano. Bizet organized the 5 movements into a suite and orchestrated them. Next on the concert the orchestra will perform Fuentes for String Orchestra, Oboe, and Trumpet, by well-known Ogden-based composer Alfonso Tenreiro. The Mussorgsky will be the final offering of the evening.
Tickets are $5.00 general admission, and available at the door one hour before the concert. Music students with school I.D., and active military and their families are invited to attend without charge. Well-behaved children 8 years and older are welcome.
This will be COO’s final regularly scheduled concert at Union Station. Beginning with the opening of the 2016-2017 season we will be moving to our new home, Peery’s Egyptian Theater in Ogden. Special Thanks to Mike Fenton, Russ Reeder, and the Egyptian Theater Foundation for easing the way for us.
