Nov. 6 lunch will preview concert

By Staff | Oct 23, 2015

Those attending the Two Rivers Chamber Orchestra’s Nov. 7 concert in Shepherdstown will have an opportunity to get a preview of the performance at a luncheon the day before.

The concert, which is sponsored by Friends of Music, will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church on Saturday, Nov. 7 at 7:30 p.m.

The luncheon, which is sponsored by the Friends of Music Guild, will be held at Shepherdstown’s Bavarian Inn on Friday, Nov. 6 at 12 noon. The orchestra’s Music Director, Jed Gaylin, will speak, offering his insights into the works that will be performed at the concert, and their composers.

Those works and composers will be:

“Last Round,” a work for double string quartet and bass by Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov.

Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E Minor, Op. 64, with violinist Jorge vila.

Beethoven’s Symphony No.1 in C Major, Op. 21.

Tickets for the luncheon are sold separately from concert tickets at a cost of $20 per person. All tickets must be prepaid before November 4 so the Bavarian Inn can have an accurate meal count.

To make a luncheon reservation and learn more, contact Betty Lou Bryant at bettylou_bryant@yahoo.com.

Admission to the concert will be free for Friends of Music members. The ticket price for others will be $25 per person. Tickets and Friends’ memberships can be purchased on the Friends’ website at www.friendswv.org or by mail (FOM, PO Box 220, Shepherdstown, WV 25443) or, if space is available, at the church the evening of the performance. Visa and Master Card will be accepted.
