The finale of the Chamber Classics series is all about the outdoors – just in time for spring! The highlight of the program is Conni Ellisor’s “Blackberry Winter: Concerto for Appalachian Dulcimer,” a beautiful collision of past and present, bringing the classic sounds of Appalachian folk together with a 21st century orchestral sound that sings the history of our region. The program begins with the KSO Woodwind Quintet playing Eric Ewazen’s Roaring Fork, which is inspired by the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Rounding out the afternoon is Honegger’s Pastorale d’été, or “Summer Pastoral”, inspired by the Swiss alps and Gustav Holst’s rustic St. Paul’s Suite.

James Fellenbaum, conductor
