The Windham Festival Chamber Orchestra with A Plenty of Winds

Windham Chamber Festival Orchestra

8:00 pm • Saturday, November 29th 2014
Doctorow Center for the Arts • Hunter, NY

With conductor Robert Manno at the helm, the Windham Festival Chamber Orchestra returns to the Doctorow Center for the Arts in Hunter for its annual Thanksgiving weekend concert. In a programmatic cornucopia, wind players are celebrated through Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Horns and Strings with horn players Patrick Milando and Zohar Schondorf and Mozart’s Concerto No. 2 for Flute and Orchestra with flutist Sato Moughalian.

The program is to include:

    • Antonio Vivaldi — Concerto for Two Horns and Strings RV. 539 (ed. P. Milando)
    • Alan ShulmanA Nocturne for Strings
    • W. A. Mozart — Concerto No. 2 for Flute and Orchestra in D Major, K. 314
    • Gustav Mahler — Symphony No. 3 Excerpt (Langsam)
    • Franz Josef Haydn — Symphony No. 24 in D Major

As we often think of family gatherings during the Thanksgiving holiday, it is poignant to note that violinist Jay Shulman is one of the members of the Windham Festival Chamber Orchestra. A Nocturne for Strings, composed by Alan Shulman (1915-2002)—Jay’s father, is on the program. Jay Shulman is an active proponent of his father’s compositions, so it is gratifying to see father and son on The Windham Festival Chamber Orchestra program together.
