New Millennium Chamber Orchestra Celebrates 10 Years
The New Millennium Chamber Orchestra invites you to join us in celebrating our 10th Anniversary! We've been bringing exceptional concerts and imaginative programming to Peninsula audiences, year in and year out, since 2012.
Our celebration concert program spotlights the winners of the NMCO 2022 Competition for Young Artists. From nearly a dozen talented young musicians who competed, we selected two outstanding players to join us in a pair of concerts on Saturday evening, February 25th in San Mateo and Sunday afternoon, February 26th in Palo Alto.
Violinist Joshua Cisneros, an eleventh-grader and student of Elbert Tsai, plays the exquisite opening movement of Sergey Prokofiev's Concerto No. 1 in D Major.
Cellist Samuel Cotta, a sophomore at Saratoga High School and a student of Christopher Costanza, will essay selections from Pyotr Tchaikovsky's virtuosic Rococo Variations.
Our celebration concerts also include three great works from the orchestral repertoire:
Giuseppe Verdi's electrifying overture to the opera La Forza del Destino (The Power of Destiny), a true orchestral tour de force
Jean Sibelius' famous Karelia Suite, three pieces from his much larger Karelia Music, which evokes the region comprising southeast Finland and parts of Russia
Gustav Holst's atmospheric Somerset Rhapsody, a fusion of three great English tunes: the Sheep-Shearing Song, High Germany and The Lovers Farewell
Come and hear the New Millennium Chamber Orchestra as we celebrate ten years of great music making on the Peninsula!
Saturday, February 25th, 7 pm at Transfiguration Episcopal Church, 3900 Alameda de las Pulgas, San Mateo.
Sunday, February 26th, 4 pm at First Presbyterian Church, 1140 Cowper Street, Palo Alto.
