Section leaders of the Napa Valley Chamber Orchestra: Tess Van Wagner (cello), Rob Wright (bass), Beth Heid (viola), Mark Hodgson (2nd violin)
The Napa Valley Chamber Orchestra will play in American Canyon for the first time on February 13 at 7:00 p.m.at the Open Door Christian Church. Admission is free.
Eleven high school students will join the 22 member adult orchestra to perform a program of 19th and 20th century compositions. The student musicians are violinists Evangeline Apostolopoulos, Sophia Haggard, Alitza Truong, Michael Landrum, and Kiel Smit, violists Zahara Lucas and Allana Williams, cellists Carlo Detain and Eden James, and bassist Nigel Quirk.
Music by such diverse composers as Peter Warlock, Jean Sibelius, and George Gershwin will fill the first half of the concert. The student musicians will join the orchestra for the second half of the concert performing Barbara Harbach’s meditative “In Memoriam: Turn Round, O My Soul, to Your Rest,” and the frolicking “Folk Tune and Fiddle Dance” by Percy Fletcher.
This is the first concert the orchestra has given in American Canyon, as a part of the orchestra’s goal of reaching out to all communities in the Napa Valley.
