Lunch is set to preview SU orchestra concert

By Staff | Feb 26, 2016

Those attending the Two Rivers Chamber Orchestra’s March 12 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, March 12 at 7:30 p.m.

The luncheon, which is is billed as Lunch with “Friends,” is sponsored by the Friends of Music Guild and will be at the Bavarian Inn on Friday, March 11 at 12 p.m. 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 Aaron Copland’s “Appalachian Spring Suite” and Antonio Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons.”

Tickets for the March 11 luncheon are sold separately from concert tickets at a cost of $20 per person. All tickets must be prepaid before March 9 so the Bavarian Inn can have an accurate meal count.
