The Covenant College Chamber Orchestra Presents Spring Concert April 10

Friday, April 04, 2014

The Covenant College Chamber Orchestra will present a spring concert on April 10, in the chapel at Covenant College. The concert begins at 8 p.m. and is free and open to the public. 

Under the direction of Prof. Lok Kim, the orchestra will perform four pieces from the early classical period to the late Romantic period. Audience members can look forward to Iphigenia in Aulis, an overture by Christoph W. Gluck; Intermezzo from the opera Cavalleria Rusticana, by Pietro Mascagni; Serenade Lyrique, by Edward Elgar; and Symphony No. 39, Eb Major, by W. A. Mozart. 

“When people hear Mozart symphonies, I am sure that his symphonies 40 and 41 pop into their heads immediately, because those are his two most famous pieces,” said Prof. Kim. “However, in my opinion, his Symphony No. 39 is his best work and has been overshadowed by these two. The piece has been always in my wish list, but I have never conducted it before because it requires highly trained skill and technique for the performers and I did not want to conduct the piece badly. Thankfully, God has finally allowed my students and me to perform the piece. I hope this concert benefits the audience as they discover this great work.”
