The St Augustine Orchestra has discovered wonderful musical treasures that will be shared with the audience during the May 15th concert. Under the expert direction of William McNeiland, the orchestra will feature intriguing music during the “Hidden Treasures” concert.
This fun filled concert will showcase little known pieces and composers along with seldom heard instrument. For example, the long-lost Scherzo movement of Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony.
In addition, members of the percussion section will be featured in a trilogy of entertaining pieces by Leroy Anderson, including the Syncopated Clock, The Typewriter, and The Sandpaper Ballet.
Many people have heard of Handel’s “Water Music”, but what about the piccolo solo, or the bassoon solo from that suite? William Walton and Benjamin Britten are two British composers whose hidden treasures should also be discovered.
For a special treat, the Orchestra’s valued hospitality volunteer team will take the stage and display their musical talents as featured soloists of Strauss’ The Blue Danube Waltz.
Hearing these unique treasures should not be missed!
Tickets are available in advance online at TICKETS or at the door on the performance night.
