Chamber Orchestra Ogden Concert with Cellist Viktor Uzur
This concert will open the 2016-2017 Chamber Orchestra Ogden season. Our featured soloist will be cellist Viktor Uzur, professor of cello at Weber State University, and internationally known concert artist. Viktor will be performing the Cello Concerto in b minor by Antonin Dvorak.
The orchestra will begin the concert with the Egmont Overture, Opus 84b by Ludwig van Beethoven. Joining us for this piece will be the members of the Weber State University String Project Youth Orchestra. Francisco de Galvez conducts this relatively new addition to the String Project program, and we look forward to having them perform with us.
This concert will be our first in our new performing venue, Peery's Egyptian Theater, 2415 Washington Blvd in Ogden. Built in an era of sumptuous movie palaces, the 1924 theater has been returned to its original elegance. Peerys Egyptian Theater boasts state-of-the-art technology, including the restored atmospheric lighting, which resembles a setting desert sun evolving into a sparkling night cosmos.
Michael Palumbo, the orchestra's music director, and the members of the orchestra are very excited to be able to perform in such a magnificent setting, and they look forward to seeing the many friends who have faithfully supported previous years' concerts, as well as many new friends.
As always, active military, veterans, and their families, are admitted without charge, as are music students of public school age.
Well behaved children 8 years and over are welcome to attend.
