|Lima Symphony Orchestra to kick off 60th anniversary season with free public concert|
|Thursday, August 22, 2013 12:09 AM|
LIMA — The Lima Symphony Orchestra will begin its 60th anniversary season with a free public concert to celebrate the restoration of St. John Catholic Church. We begin our season with “Baroque by Candlelight” at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 7 at St. John Church, 777 S. Main St.
St. John Church was the original home of the LSO’s Candlelight concerts, which began in 1997 and continued in that space until 2008. With the restoration of the church, we are delighted to return to the location that gave rise to our popular sanctuary concerts.
Our vibrant and engaging concert will feature some of the most famous and familiar music of the Baroque era performed against the warm glow of hundreds of glistening candles.
Our full program will feature:
Jean-Phillippe Rameau Suite from Dardanus
Archangelo Corelli Concerto Grosso in C minor
Antonio Vivaldi Concerto for flute, oboe, bassoon and violin
“Tempesta di mare”
Antonio Vivaldi Concerto for two flutes, two oboes and violin
Georg Philipp Telemann Suite from Burlesque de Don Quizotte Overture
Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, we are able to offer this concert free of charge. The public is invited to attend; no tickets will be distributed.
