Lander, WY - The Fremont Symphony Orchestra (FSO) is proud to present its Spring Concert next Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 7 pm at the Lander Valley High School. This will be the first performance as the newly created Fremont Symphony, formerly known as the Fremont County Orchestra.
To commemorate the occasion, they are featuring two FSO soloists, Camille Barnes on violin and Fred Petersen on cello. Many of you will know these two popular performers often dubbed as the youngest and oldest members of the FSO (although I'm not sure that's officially true anymore).
Ms. Barnes has been stealing the stage ever since she performed a solo movement of a Vivaldi violin concerto at the age of twelve. She will be playing the Danse Macabre by Camille Saint-Saens, a playful yet dark piece evocative of spirits dancing at a ball.
Mr. Petersen is always a crowd favorite, as he brings to Lander the incredibly rich tones of his cello made in the early 1700s. He will be performing Kol Nidre, by Max Bruch, a hauntingly beautiful hymn inspired by a ceremony performed on Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement.
Also featured will be a collection of Russian dances by Aram Khachaturian entitled Masquerade Suite, Faust Ballet Music by Charles Gounod, and music from the film scores the Last of the Mohicans and Cinema Paradiso. In addition, the Imperial Orchestra, comprised of future FSO members, will be performing Clocks by Coldplay, Hot, Hot, Hot, and Hallelujah.
Both the FSO and Imperial Orchestra are directed by Rebecca Murdock. Tickets are $10 for individuals, $20 per family, and $5 for students and can be purchased at the door.
