Concert: Sunday, November 3 at 3 p.m.
The Chamber Orchestra of Barrington at St. John’s, led by Music Director Edward Markward, will present the second concert of its season on Sunday, November 3 at 3 p.m. at St. John’s Episcopal Church, 191 County Road, Barrington.
The program features works by two of history’s most beloved composers, Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Franz Joseph Haydn. The Serenade in C major (for Strings) is one of Tchaikovsky’s most popular works, and Haydn’s Symphony No. 103 in E-flat major (“The Drumroll”) is the penultimate of his twelve “London Symphonies,” his last works in symphonic form.
Comprised of 36 professional, community and student musicians from Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts, the ensemble was created to showcase the finest quality music in the chamber orchestra repertoire. The orchestra is hosted by St. John’s Episcopal Church and Jacob Stott, its director of Music.
The concerts are free, but donations are welcome.
