Vintner’s Chamber Orchestra Mother's Day Weekend Concert
Enjoy an enchanted evening featuring Vintner’s Chamber Orchestra at Buena Vista Winery, located in the Fountain Courtyard (weather permitting), otherwise the event will be inside the Wine Tool Museum.
The program will include four masterpieces of the string ensemble repertoire, with music that spans across the globe and ranges from the 1800s to the present day.
The concert opens with music by the contemporary American composer John Corigliano. His “Invitation au voyage” (Invitation to the Voyage) is a hauntingly beautiful setting of a poem by the French Romantic poet Charles Baudelaire, transcribed by the composer for string orchestra from the original choral work. Then it’s on to the Bohemian countryside, with the joyful “Serenade for Strings” by the Czech composer Antonin Dvorak. Next it’s up north, with the tender and epigrammatic “Romance” by Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. The concert concludes with one of the most beloved works of all time, Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, a virtuoso tour de force of Russian Romanticism.
The Vintner’s Chamber Orchestra is committed to bringing high-quality and innovative performances of the chamber orchestra repertoire to audiences throughout the North Bay. Our repertoire focuses on the traditional masterworks of chamber orchestra repertoire from the 1750s to the present, while also including world music, new music, and collaborations with soloists, vocalists, and artists of all stripes. Highly-qualified students from Sonoma State's Department of Music are invited to join the orchestra, and the ensemble performs for elementary and middle school students throughout Sonoma County.
Wine for purchase will be available. No outside wine/alcohol allowed permitted.
