Chapel Hill Philharmonia’s Children’s Concert “Dances from Old and New World”

CHAPEL HILL, NC — Posted September 24, 2019

On Saturday, October 19, at 3:00pm the Chapel Hill Philharmonia will perform a special program highlighting exciting dance music. Conductor Evan Feldman leads the orchestra in Dvorak’s familar “Slavonic Dance, op. 46, No. 1”, Strauss’s beloved “The Blue Danube”, and Marquez’s exuberant “Danzon No. 2”. Rounding out the program is Bach/Caillet’s “Little Fugue in G-minor”, Berk’s “Eagle” and “Chickadee” from Avian Suite, and Dvorak’s Finale from Symphony #9.

The premiere of “Chapel Hill Fantasia”, written by James Larkins, a student in the UNC Department of Music, will also be presented. The melody for this piece was composed by West Cary Beginning Strings middle schoolers, taught by director William Slechta. Children from the audience will conduct the orchestra in excerpts from Williams’ “Harry Potter” and “Star Wars”.

The concert will be in Moeser Auditorium on the UNC-CH campus. Kidz Notes musicians will be performing in the rotunda at 2:30pm. Concert begins at 3:00. Admission is free.
