Upcoming concert: Concord Chamber Orchestra

The Concord Chamber Orchestra will present Hard and Soft, the next in the 2018-19 series of concerts looking at musical contrasts.  The concert begins at 7 PM on March 23 at St. Sebastian's Church, 5400 W. Washington Boulevard. 

The March concert for CCO always features the winner of their student concerto competition.  This year the CCO chose two winners:  violinist Daniella Brusubardis and pianist Neil Krzesk.  Both performed so well that the judges could not choose just one.  And so both will perform at the March 23rd concert.

Here is the concert program:

  • "The Montagues & the Capulets" from Romeo and Juliet - Sergei Prokofiev
  • Rhapsody in Blue - George Gershwin featuring Neil Krzesk
  • Violin Concerto No. 3 - Camille Saint-SaĆ«ns featuring Daniella Brusubardis
  • Variations on a Theme by Haydn - Johannes Brahms
Doors open at 6:30.  For more information or to order tickets, please see the CCO web site.
