BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — The Melbourne Community Orchestra will present two concerts of classical music when the “MCO Goes Classical” on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, April 30 and May 1 at the Melbourne Auditorium at 625 Hibiscus Boulevard in Melbourne.
The 7:30 p.m. concerts will feature the three movement Symphony in D Minor by the Belgian composer, César Franck.
Controversial when it premiered in 1889, Franck’s only symphony is today among his most admired compositions.
Antonio Vivaldi’s Concerto in C for Two Trumpets and Strings will highlight the talents of trumpet players David Ewing and David Quenzler, while A Fugal Concerto for Flute and Oboe by Gustav Holst, will spotlight David Tweed on flute and Debbie Pillorge on oboe.
ADMISSION IS FREE
Admission is free and the audience is encouraged to arrive early for best seating. For musician and Melbourne Community Orchestra president, John Yust, the entirely classical concert is a way to feature some of the group’s particularly talented wind and brass players.
“We have some really outstanding musicians in our ranks,” said Yust. “Everyone has been working hard and I think the audience will come away with a new appreciation for the Melbourne Community Orchestra.”
