Join Symphony Number One for an evening of sensational music for strings! Described by the Baltimore Sun as "a worthwhile addition to [Baltimore's] music scene," the second program of the season opens with Dvořák's Serenade for Strings, one of his most popular orchestral works for audiences and musicians alike. A string orchestra arrangement of Arnold Schoenberg's hauntingly beautiful Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night) follows. Originally composed for string sextet, this one-movement work weaves the tale of two young lovers' journey. The highlight of the program will be a world premiere for string orchestra by award-winning Australian composer Nicole Murphy. Symphony Number One will perform at Grace and St. Peter's Church on October 17 at 8pm and October 18 at 3pm with the world premiere of Nicole Murphy's newest work for chamber orchestra. Led by conductor Jordan Randall Smith, the program will also feature two orchestral staples: Dvořák's Serenade for Strings and Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht.
