Meet the Maestros
|Dan Allcott, Music Director and Conductor|
Welcome to the exciting 2015-16 season of the Oak Ridge Symphony and Chorus! We will thrill you with a variety of music, talent from Tennessee, and beyond. Alongside lesser known works and unique semi-staged productions, you will hear major masterpieces by Haydn, Beethoven and Dvorak. I believe that the uniqueness of Oak Ridge must be reflected in our artistic work. We continue to build new connections and celebrate the talent around us. We continue to honor the tradition of the Oak Ridge Civic Music Association’s long-standing efforts to bring great music to our community. Join us as we move forward with the exciting 2015-16 season!
|Seth Maples, Chorus Director|
I am extremely excited to be joining the Oak Ridge Civic Music Association in my third year as the director of the chorus. The growth of our choir, both in number and in musicality, has been tremendous as of late. This 2015-2016 ORCMA Season promises to be one of our most memorable seasons yet, featuring music of the absolute highest quality in the choral repertoire. From the incidental music of Vaughan Williams' The Wasps to the breathtaking 9th Symphony of Beethoven, the chorus is excited to perform this music with our orchestra and to also collaborate with Oak Ridge Sound Company and Pellissippi State's premiere vocal ensemble, Variations. Don't forget about our chorus concert, either! In honor of our Beethoven 9 performance, the chorus concert will feature all composers with B names, including Bach, Brahms, Bruckner, Billings, and Biebl. I'm looking forward to a fantastic season!
