Classic Superstars!...with special guest artist Mark Kosower, cello

It’s an afternoon of distinction featuring intimate music by classic superstars Vivaldi, Mozart, Haydn, and “the London Bach.”  Special guest artist Mark Kosower, Principal Cellist of The Cleveland Orchestra, brings his Oak Ridge Residency* to a close with performances of two beautifully elegant cello concertos.  It’s not only a concert, but a lesson in all things music!

This Will Be Our Reply

Oak Ridge Symphony & Chorus

Oak Ridge High School Performing Arts Center

Make music. Make peace. Join the Oak Ridge Symphony Orchestra & Chorus for an exquisite program of musical responses to violence in our world. Beethoven offered his reply to violence by famously changing the dedication of his powerful third symphony in reaction to Napoleon’s unending wars. Tennesseans will be in the first group of listeners to hear and reply to a call to “heal the world” in Lucas Richman’s Symphony: This Will Be Our Reply. What will your reply be?

Bach to Broadway!

Oak Ridge Chorus

Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church

Music, mingling and munching make for another perfect evening with the Oak Ridge Chorus!  Enjoy music by J.S. Bach before you browse through the silent auction items to support ORCMA’s mission. Broadway music sets the stage for your bidding in the second intermission.  Take home a treasure from this night to remember!

Chamber Delights & Dances
