Beethoven brings amateur and professional musicians to the stage this weekend
- Published: November 2, 2011
The local community orchestra rehearsed Beethoven’s “Triple Concerto” with conductor James Johnston in preparation for a performance of three’s this weekend. Aptly named “Triplicity,” the concert features three ensembles, including the amateur Yellow Springs community chorus and orchestra, and a professional group, the Triple Helix Piano Trio, who will solo with both local groups.
The groups present “Triplicity” on Saturday, Nov. 5, at 7:30 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church. The performance includes the Triple Concerto, Beethoven’s Leonore Overture and the world premiere of Yu-Hiu Chang’s “It Is An Illusion You Were Ever Free” for soprano, alto, tenor, bass.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students.
The concert is a double booking for Triple Helix, which will perform again in a purely professional setting the following night as part of the Chamber Music Yellow Springs 2011–12 concert series. Triple Helix performs alone for CMYS on Sunday, Nov. 6, at 7:30 p.m., again at the Presbyterian Church.
The community concert is made possible by a grant from the Yellow Springs Community Foundation.
