The Findlay High School Symphony Orchestra and the Findlay High School Chamber Orchestra will present a Finale Spring Concert at 7:30 p.m. Monday, May 16, in R.L. Heminger Auditorium at Findlay High School. The concert is free and open to the public. The Chamber Orchestra will begin the concert with two selections: “Prelude for String Orchestra,” and “Blue Rhythmico.” The group performed these two pieces for the Annie Moses Band in a master class as part of an educational outreach while the Annie Moses Band was in Findlay for a performance. The Chamber Orchestra comprises a select group of 20 string players who also perform in the Findlay High School Symphony Orchestra. The Symphony Orchestra, comprising 73 students, will perform seven selections at the concert, including “Medieval Legend” by Michael Story, conducted by Anita Schaible; and “Hungarian Dance No. 5 and No. 6” by Johannes Brahms, conducted by David Brax. In addition, the orchestra will perform Fantasy on “Sleepers, Wake” by J.S. Bach and “Aragonaise” from “Carmen” by George Bizet. The group received a “superior” rating on these two selections from a panel of judges when they were performed at the Ohio Music Education Association State Orchestra Contest. The orchestra performance will also feature “Unfinished Symphony No. 8” by Franz Schubert. This challenging piece is a professional-level work that is performed by major symphony orchestras. The concert will conclude with “Purgatorio,” composed by Robert W. Smith. This piece is a tone poem based on Dante’s “Divine Comedy.” It tells the story of Dante’s journey through the island mountain Purgatory where he encounters the seven deadly sins. An unusual and haunting piece, it includes many instrumental solos as well as a vocal element. The Symphony Orchestra is directed by Ken Pressel, with assistant directors David Brax and Anita Schaible. For more information, contact Pressel at 419-422-7158.
