Concert Preview: Concord Chamber Orchestra

The Concord Chamber Orchestra will present its final concert of the season on Saturday May 12.  It is entitled A New Day, and will be performed at the Wauwatosa Presbyterian Church, one block north of North Avenue on 80th Street. 

The concert will begin at 7 PM and will celebrate the heroes who have lived and worked in our own lifetimes.  These heroes are the ones who help us to embrace humanity and remind us that, as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “the ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

The program includes:

  • Fanfare for the Common Man - Aaron Copland
  • Lt. Kijé Suite - Sergei Prokofiev
  • JFK - A Profile - Steven Rosenhaus
  • Fanfare for An Uncommon Woman - Joan Tower
  • Selections from Porgy & Bess - George Gershwin (arr. by Robert Russell Bennett)
For more information or to reserve your tickets, please see the CCO web site.

And a note from the Kettle Moraine Symphony.  They, along with the Moraine Chorus, will perform Hayden's The Creation on Sunday May 6 at 3 PM at the Basilica at Holy Hill.  For a complete description of the concert and the soloists, please see the KMSO web site.
