Hope College Orchestra Presents
Last Concert of the Academic Year

Posted April 10, 2002

HOLLAND -- The Hope College Orchestra presents its final concert of the 2001-02 school year on Friday, April 19, at 8 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel.

The public is invited. Admission is free. The first work on the program will be the "Slavonic Dances No.1 and 8, Opus 46," by Antonin Dvorak. The two pieces depict the folk tradition of the Czech people.

The next work on the program is Claude Debussy's "Prelude to an Afternoon of a Faun." An exploration of texture and color, the "Prelude" is a handbook of orchestration, employing the use of silence, violins in their lowest register and antique cymbals.

The concert closes with "Mars, the Bringer of War," "Venus, the Bringer of Peace," "Mercury, the Winged Messenger" and "Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity," from "Planets" by Gustav Holst.

Dimnent Memorial Chapel is located on College Avenue at 12th Street.
