On April 22, UNG Sinfonietta will broadcast a diverse program in celebration of our graduating concertmaster, Chelsea Shankles. The concert will feature two major works from the string orchestra repertoire: Antonio Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Violins in a A minor, with Shankles and Katelynn Black as soloists, and Ralph Vaughan Williams’s delightful Charterhouse Suite. Our harpist, Skylar Cibirka, will be featured on several numbers adapted from the vocal repertoire, including the famous “Barcarolle” from Jacques Offenbach’s The Tales of Hoffmann, “Make Our Garden Grow” from Leonard Bernstein’s Candide, and “In Paradisum” from Gabriel Fauré’s beautiful Requiem. Finally, Sinfonietta will perform a selection of familiar themes from major motion pictures, with a surprise finale. Tune in to find out! The video will start streaming at 7:30 pm on the UNG Music Department YouTube channel, and will remain available after the premiere.
