Images from the Parkway Concert Orchestra's 69th Season!
The final concert of the Orchestra's 69th season. We were fortunate to perform with Kyoko Hida-Battaglia, English horn soloist for Sibelius' The Swan of Tuonela.
On Sunday, March 9, 2014 the Parkway Concert Orchestra presented a concert entitled “Classical Music Goes to the Movies” to an appreciative audience in the spectacular setting of West Roxbury’s Holy Name Church. The Orchestra welcomed guest artist Alexis Lanz, performing Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, K. 622. As an extra special treat the Holy Name Adult Choir, led by Thomas Manguem, performed Mendelssohn’s “How Lovely Are Thy Messengers” with the Orchestra. At Intermission, orchestra members presented an "Instrument Petting Zoo" to the delight of the younger audience members.
On Sunday, March 2, 2014, the Parkway Concert Orchestra presented a program entitled “Classical Music Goes to the Movies” to an appreciative audience at the acoustically and visually beautiful Saint Susanna Parish in Dedham. The Orchestra welcomed guest clarinet soloist Alexis Lanz, who performed Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, K. 622. Assistant Conductor Brian Bell opened the program with Rossini’s “The Barber of Seville Overture.”
In spite of (or perhaps because of) wintery conditions, the Orchestra attraced a warm and supportive audience on December 15. We were pleased to welcome Guest Conductor Patrick Botti.
On a crisp November afternoon, the Parkway Concert Orchestra opened its 69th season to a full and supportive house. With a nod to the season of goblins, ghouls and trick-or-treaters, the Orchestra's new Music Director and Conductor, Geneviève Leclair, programmed a delightful concert entitled "Spooky." Kay Rooney-Matthews was our special guest violin soloist, performing Saint-Saëns' Danse Macabre.
Members of the Orchestra participate in many musical performances beyond the regular season's formal concert series. This album contains images from some of those performances.
