Take The Reins: Chamber Orchestra Concert - IN-PERSON
The Clarice’s National Orchestral Institute + Festival returns to the stage for the first time since COVID-19 upended life as we knew it! In this special opening performance, NOI+F fellows take the reins in a program that combines the demands of chamber music playing with those of large ensemble performance. The 2021 orchestral fellows will perform without a conductor and lead each other in chamber orchestra repertoire by Mozart, Haydn, Grant Still and Korngold.
The National Orchestral Institute + Festival, a program of the University of Maryland’s Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, trains aspiring orchestral musicians, composers, conductors and arts administrators from across the country in a month of dynamic music-making and professional exploration at The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Musicians are chosen through a rigorous, cross-country audition process. Every year, these young artists present passionate and awe-inspiring performances of adventuresome repertoire at The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center.
William Grant Still: Mother and Child
Erich Wolfgang Korngold: Suite from "Viel Lärmen um Nichts," Op. 11
Joseph Haydn: Symphony No. 6, "Le Matin"
