Tilikum Chamber Orchestra Concert

Tilikum Chamber Orchestra (TCO) presents
Ahead of Their Time under Guest Conductor Dwayne Corbin
Saturday, December 15, 7:30 pm
Rex Putnam High School Auditorium
The TCO performs music from three transitional points in music history–a forward-looking Symphony in D Major by CPE Bach which leaves behind his father’s Baroque style in favor of the new Italian galant movement; Stravinsky’s playful & neo-classical Suite for Small Orchestra; and Mendelssohn’s tragically misunderstood Symphony No. 5, that, while Mendelssohn thought was his best work ever, was branded as too intellectual and historically-influenced by musicians of his time, and thus was left to rot in a locked cupboard until after the composer’s death. Rounding out the concert will be one of Mendelssohn’s earliest works, his Overture for Winds, composed at age 15.
