Tonight features a work by Truckee resident David Nelson, and a performance by the Lake Tahoe Dance Collective with a special guest from the New Chamber Ballet of New York City. This program begins with British composer Lennox Berkeley’s Windsor Variations – a work written for the Windsor Festival in 1969. It is a theme with seven variations written for the identical sized orchestra as this summers’ LTMF Academy Orchestra. Next is Antonin Dvořák’s Silent Woods, featuring Icelandic cellist Sæunn Thorsteindóttir. Then we have the premiere performance of Truckee resident David Nelson’s Sketch Number 1 for Strings, written for the our LTMF Academy Orchestra. Next we feature three of the LTMF wind players, flutist Caitrine Massoud playing John Corigliano’s Voyage, and bassoonists Georgeanne Banker and Robyn Watson playing Vanhal’s Concerto for Two Bassoons. The program ends with Lake Tahoe Dance Collective dancing to music from Haydn’s Symphony 87.
