The Oak Ridge Symphony Orchestra and Oak Ridge Chorus will perform an All-Mozart Concert on Saturday.
The concert is presented by the Oak Ridge Civic Music Association, and it will be led by Maestro Dan Allcott.
It’s scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, November 5, at the First United Methodist Church of Oak Ridge.
The concert will feature the Oak Ridge Chorus performing Mozart’s “Coronation” Mass with the Oak Ridge Symphony, and Mozart’s “Divertimento in F major.” The concert will also feature guest artist, Gabriel Lefkowitz, currently in his final season as concertmaster of the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, in a performance of Mozart’s “Violin Concerto No. 5.”
There’s something for everyone in this concert featuring the music of the world’s best-known composer, a press release said.
“In my opinion, there are very few composers whose music warrants an exclusive evening of music—Mozart is one,” Allcott said. “The three pieces on the concert represent different aspects of Mozart as a composer. The ‘Coronation’ Mass shows Mozart’s skill and enthusiasm in writing for voices and orchestra. The ‘Violin Concerto No. 5’ (nicknamed ‘Turkish’) is an example of a virtuoso composer writing for a virtuoso performer, highlighting what was then a very popular element in music—eastern influences from the Ottoman Empire.”
