Hope College Symphonette to
Perform on Friday, Feb. 21

Posted February 10, 2003

HOLLAND -- The Hope College Symphonette will perform on Friday, Feb. 21, at 8 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel.

The public is invited. Admission is free.

The program will include the "Pastoral Suite Op. 19," by Lars-Erik Larsson. The three-movement suite consists of Overture, Romance and Scherzo depicting the romantic and contemporary musical language of this Scandinavian composer.

The second work will be "Dance Rhythms Op. 58," by Wallingford Riegger, an American composer. The work is a bouncy, strongly syncopated dance piece.

"Premier Rhapsody for Clarinet and Orchestra" features music faculty member and clarinetist Kristin Ward. An impressionistic work of the 20th century, the piece takes the clarinet into technical and musical challenges never before exhibited.

The program closes with "L'Arlesienne Suite No. 2," by Georges Bizet. The composition features the Pastorale, Intermezzo, Minuet and Farandole.

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