The orchestra’s program will feature a number of American and classical favorites, including Beethoven’s 5th Symphony and Camille St. Saen’s Dance Bacchanale, along with favorites by Leroy Anderson, Johann Strauss and John Philip Sousa. The program will conclude with Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, with accompaniment provided by the chapel’s bell tower.
“This has become a tradition for our program and a wonderful way to open our season in a beautiful outdoor setting,” Dr. Abegg said. “This will be a short program the whole family can enjoy.”
In all, the DSC Symphony Orchestra will perform six times this academic year, including four concert engagements at the Avenna Center Cox Auditorium, starting with the annual fall concert on Saturday, Oct. 27. The Orchestra will also ring in the holiday season with a special Christmas concert on Saturday, December 8.
