Saturday, March. 15, 7:30 p.m., Lorimer Chapel
The Colby Symphony Orchestra presents Mendelssohn's fifth symphony Reformation composed in 1830 in honor of the three-hundredth anniversary of the Presentation of the Augsburg Confession. Unfortunately, this marvelous work did not get showcased at the intended occasion and underwent many layers of censorship including from the composer himself.
In this concert, the symphony will be performed in all its glory, along with three of Brahms' enchanting Hungarian Dances and Aaron Copland's hauntingly beautiful Quiet City.
