Pre-Concert Conversation with Kenneth Andrews and Soloist, Joyce Cheng 30 minutes prior to the concert

The Baroque Orchestra of ONNY proudly presents a program that goes beyond the Baroque time period to include music from the Classical period, the 21st century, and a set of dances written in the style of the 16th century Renaissance. 

The concert opens with the scintillating energy of Antonio Vivaldi’s Concerto in G Major “Alla Rustica.”  Peter Warlock’s Capriol Suite, an audience favorite, features a variety of elegant Renaissance dances. ONNY musicians look forward to performing Starburst, written in 2012 by the rising American female composer, Jessie Montgomery. She was recently named Composer in Residence for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Finally, the virtuosic and noble sounds of Geminiani’s Concerto Grosso in D Minor “La Folia” conclude the concert. 

Cellist Joyce Cheng, Clifton Park, offers a stirring solo performance of the 2nd and 3rd movements from the beautiful Cello Concerto in D Major by  Franz Joseph Haydn. 

Join us 30 minutes early for a Pre-Concert Conversation between Music Director Kenneth Andrews and 2020 Young Artist Competition winner Joyce Cheng (Clifton Park).
