Hamilton College Performing Arts presents Symphoria on Friday, Feb. 28, at 7:30 p.m., in Wellin Hall, Schambach Center for Music and the Performing Arts.
Symphoria returns to Hamilton College with conductor Matthew Kraemer and soloist Elmar Oliveira, violin. The program includes Vivaldi’s Le Quattro Staggioni, Op. 8, No. 1-4 (The Four Seasons), Grieg’s “Last Spring” from Two Elegiac Melodies, Op. 34, and Copland’s Appalachian Spring.
Elmar Oliveira is one of the most distinguished violinists in the world today. His commitment to a wide spectrum of the violin world manifests itself in numerous ways, such as consistently expanding repertoire boundaries as a champion of both contemporary music and rarely-heard works of the past, devoting considerable energy to the development of younger artists, and enthusiastically supporting the efforts and art of modern violin makers.
Symphoria is the orchestra of Musical Associates of CNY, a not-for-profit organization made up of nearly 50 members of the former Syracuse Symphony Orchestra.
Tickets for this event are $20 for adults, $15 for senior citizens and $5 for students. For more information, call the box office at 859-4331 or visit www.hamiltonpa.org.
