The Hope College Orchestra will perform on Friday, Nov. 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the Concert Hall of the Jack H. Miller Center for Musical Arts.
The public is invited. Admission is free.
The Hope College Orchestra, conducted by Daniel Brier, will perform Romantic masterpieces by Johannes Brahms, Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Franz Schubert. Among his most popular compositions, Brahms’ “Hungarian Dances” evoke the spirited and soulful music of the Roma culture. Tchaikovsky’s “Serenade for Strings” contains some of the composer's most heartfelt music and, though left unfinished, Schubert's “Symphony No. 8” features both lyricism and drama.
Conductor Daniel Brier is the music director and principal conductor of Opera Wilmington and visiting assistant professor of music at Hope. Previously, he served the Kalamazoo Symphony orchestra as interim music director (2017-18), resident conductor (2016-17, 2018-22), and assistant conductor (2014-16). Recent and upcoming conducting engagements include the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Grand Rapids Symphony Orchestra, Toledo Symphony, Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, Lexington Philharmonic, Adrian Symphony, Whiting Park Symphony Orchestra and St. Petersburg Chamber Philharmonic. He has collaborated with a diverse range of artists including Bobby McFerrin, Pablo Sainz Villegas, Rachel Barton Pine, Jennifer Frautschi and more. More information can be found at danielbrier.com
