Romantic composers at the heart of InConcert Sierra orchestra program

Submitted to Prospector

Forty four professional musicians from around the state comprise the InConcert Sierra orchestra. The Third Sunday Series is the only full orchesta performance by InConcert Sierra.

Get swept away by the beauty and eloquence of the Romantic Era in a program of classical music favorites performed by the InConcert Sierra Orchestra Sunday in Grass Valley, as the Greatest Hits of Orchestral Music Vol. 6, will once again be led by conductor Ken Hardin.

This will be the first performance of InConcert Sierra's Third Sunday Series for the 2018-19 season. The program for the annual orchestra concert is curated by Hardin from selections solicited from the audience of their favorite works.

Experience the dynamic sounds of the Romantic works live when the orchestra performs Mendelssohn's Overture from "A Midsummer Night's Dream," Elgar's "Salut d'amour," Schubert's "Symphony No. 2, Movement 1," Borodin's "In the Steppes of Central Asia," Bridge's "Lament for String Orchestra," Glinka's "Kamarinskaya," Rimsky-Korsakov's "Scheherazade Suite, Movement 1," and Franck's "Symphony in D minor, Movement 3/Finale."

"The requests just happened to coalesce around the Romantic composers this year," Hardin said. "The program has some really exciting, lovely opportunities to feature individual players in the orchestra and to showcase a contrast between German and Russian Romantics."

The InConcert Sierra orchestra is comprised of 44 professional musicians from around the state. The concert is an annual benefit event for the time-honored nonprofit arts organization, which began in 1946. Individual musicians can be sponsored for this performance to raise funds for InConcert educational programs and services.
