Sounds of the Orchestral Sections in Sixth Concert
The next DCS Concerts on Demand program features each of the four sections of the orchestra performing a wide variety of music under the direction of Dr. Roberta Winemiller. The strings begin with works by Antonio Vivaldi and Karl Jenkins, and conclude with a selection of songs from Beauty and the Beast by Alan Menkin. Next, the woodwinds perform the Petite Symphonie by Charles Gounod, followed by three compositions for percussion quartet, including a special arrangement by DCS percussionist Katherine Hajec of the percussion variation of Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra. The concert concludes with the brass section performing music by Giovanni Gabrieli and Johann Strauss Sr. This free virtual concert will be available on the orchestra’s YouTube channel at a date to be announced.
