St. Augustine Orchestra Performs Tribute
April 26, 2013 8:00 PM Lightner Museum

The St. Augustine Orchestra under the direction of conductor William McNeiland will explore some intriguing byways of orchestral music in the upcoming concert April 26th. Opening with the “Secret of Suzanne” by Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari the orchestra will feature some solo instruments that are rarely heard as soloists. The first movement of Anton Bruckner’s “Symphony Zero” will also be played. An early work, this symphony was published after the composer’s other nine symphonies, so …”Symphony Zero”.
Bob Moore, the orchestra’s composer-in-residence, has written a vibraphone solo called “Low Viscosity” that will feature Tony Steve soloist. Mr. Moore will conduct his own
work and will also serve as guest conductor for a tuba solo; “Variations on the Cobbler’s Bench” by Arthur Frackenpohl. The youngest member of the orchestra at twelve years of age, Cameron Black, will be the soloist playing in Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 3.
The orchestra will salute our heroes serving in the military musically and will close the concert with “Superman Returns”, which features music from several of the superhero’s films. As a part of the orchestra’s tribute any active military will be admitted free to either concert.
