Erie Chamber Orchestra Brings Together Old and New by Tracy Geibel

Saturday, Jan. 14

For many, January is a time to reflect on the past and to look to the future. The Erie Chamber Orchestra is beginning the new year in a similar way, with “The Erie Chamber Orchestra (ECO): Old and New.”

The concert, which will be led by ECO music director candidate Vincent Danner, begins with music from Jacques Ibert, a notable French musician. Born in 1890 Paris, he became a successful composer known for Escales and Divertissement.

The concert, which will be led by ECO music director candidate Vincent Danner, begins with music from Jacques Ibert, a notable French musician.

The ensemble will then feature newer music by George Walker, who won the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 1996. His work has been performed across the U.S. and in England.

To end the evening, the ECO will perform Joseph Haydn’s Horn Concerto No. 1, and W.A. Mozart’s Symphony No. 39.

Danner is perhaps just the man to lead this concert, as he is known for his “easy authority in music of all styles and periods.”

He has worked with orchestras across the U.S. and Europe, and is now a lecturer at Baldwin Wallace University. He received the Sally B. Parker award from the American Symphony Orchestra League after he led the Memphis Symphony Orchestra’s Martin Luther King Jr. Tribute.

While the show begins at 7:30 p.m., attendees who arrive early will be able to Meet the Maestro at 6:30 p.m. – Tracy Geibel
