Winter 2015 Concert: City Trees
December 9, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pmFree
To spread the word about the orchestra and our mission, the Duke Medicine Orchestra has commissioned NY-based composer Michael Markowski to transcribe his beautiful work City Trees for us. Michael will join us for the premiere here in Durham and will be able to share his inspiration for the work. Local artist Clara K Johnson is designing three art works to go with the City Trees theme of our concert and will display her artwork in the lobby of Baldwin Auditorium at the concert.
Michael and Clara will give a give a pre-concert talk at 7pm, and the concert will begin at 7:30pm. The concert program also includes España by Chabrier, the overture from Hänsel and Gretel by Humperdink, and the Grand Canyon Suite by Grofé.
The concert and talk are free and open to the public.
