The Old Bridge Chamber Orchestra (OBCO) will be performing their “American Symphonic Masterpieces” on May 27 in Manassas.
The performance will be at 7:30 p.m. at the Hylton Performing Ars Center.
“The audience is invited to celebrate Memorial Day weekend by enjoying some of the most moving and powerful works in the American repertoire, including Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue (Viscount Thurston, piano), Barber’s Adagio for Strings, and Copland’s Hoe-Down from Rodeo, Quiet City (Nick Nichols, trumpet; Claire Workinger, english horn), and Lincoln Portrait (Senator Jeremy McPike, narrator),” stated a release.
Tickets are $20 – children 17 years and younger are free – and tickets can be purchased in person at the Hylton Center or online here.
“This concert includes some of the most profound and distinctly American works ever written for orchestra and Vike, Nick, and Claire are performing at the tops of their games. Add to that Senator McPike’s contribution as narrator and this promises to be a tremendous evening of music,” stated OBCO Board President and Concertmistress Sheyna Burt in a release.
