Hope College Symphonette to Open 2001-02 Season

Posted September 26, 2001

HOLLAND -- The Hope College Symphonette will present its first concert of the 2001-2002 season on Friday, Sept. 28, at 8 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel.

The public is invited. Admission is free.

The concert opens with the Little Suite for String Orchestra by Danish composer Carl Nielsen. A three-movement piece highly influenced by Dvorak and Brahms, the suite was debuted in the famed Tivoli Gardens in 1888.

Also in the program is the Concerto Grosso No. 1 for Strings and Piano Obligato by Jewish-American composer Ernest Bloch. The neo-classic work will feature piano soloist Linda Strouf, a member of the Hope College music faculty.

The Symphonette will conclude the concert with The Comedians Suite, Op. 26 by Russian composer Dimitri Kabalevsky. The suite is composed of several musical pictures and includes a virtuoso solo for the xylophone.

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