A cool concert tradition continues in 2014 when Toccata goes for “Brrroque.”
The Tahoe Chamber Orchestra and Chorus opens its ninth annual Winter MusicFest with the “Brroque Masters” concert series Jan. 4, 5, 7 and 10.
The program opens with Vivaldi’s famous Concerto for Two Trumpets, featuring baroque trumpeters Mark Lord and William van Meter, followed by Corelli’s well known “Christmas” Concerto Grosso Op. 6 #8 featuring violinists Mickey Lufkin, Brian Fox, and cellist Nick Haines and J.S.Bach’s Cantata #4 Fallt mit Danken from the Christmas Oratorio.
All three sopranos, Joy Strotz, Michelle Norris and Anna Helwing will interpret on different nights J.S. Bach’s Cantata BWV 51, Jauchzet Gott in allen Länden, for coloratura soprano, trumpet, strings and continuo, with David Brock playing continuo harpsichord and Mark Lord as solo trumpet.
David Brock will then interpret G.F. Händel’s Concerto for Organ, 2 oboes and strings Op. 4 #4.
The concert finalizes with Händel’s “hit” from his 1742 oratorio Samson, Let the bright Seraphim for coloratura soprano, solo trumpet, strings and continuo. Maestro James Rawie will conduct all performances
