The Chamber Orchestra of New York will make its debut performance at Adelphi University’s Performing Arts Center’s Concert Hall on Saturday, May 16 at 7:30 p.m. with an all-Ralph Vaughan Williams program.
Under the baton of its music director, Salvatore Di Vittorio, the orchestra’s program features two premieres of first-edition publications of Vaughan Williams’ early works by publisher Oxford University Press, in collaboration with the Vaughan Williams Charitable Trust. The Solent will serve as an introduction to the Fantasia for Piano and Orchestra, showcasing German pianist Sina Klole. The evening will conclude with the masterwork The Lark Ascending, featuring British violinist Jennifer Pike.
The Chamber Orchestra of New York, established in 2006 in honor of the preeminent early
20th-century Italian composer Ottorino Respighi, is dedicated to presenting the great orchestral repertoire alongside undiscovered or rarely performed gems that complement and extend the classical tradition. The orchestra provides performance opportunities for young musicians exiting music conservatories, as well as those in the early phases of their careers. Its musicians are students and graduates of The Julliard School, Manhattan School of Music and Mannes College of Music, as well as other music schools in the tristate area.
