The Arkansas Symphony Chamber Orchestra will present a concert on Sunday, October 29 at 3:00 p.m. in Brown Chapel on the Lyon College campus. The program is sponsored by First Community Bank, Lyon College, and the Batesville Symphony League, and no admission will be charged.
The first half of the program will feature Kiril Laskarov and Andrew Irvin, violins, in Concerto for Two Violins in D Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach and Double Concerto by Michael Fine, which premiered in May 2017.
After a short pause, the orchestra will perform the original version of Appalachian Spring: Suite by Aaron Copland, which is rarely heard.
In addition, Maestro Geoffrey Robson, the orchestra’s conductor, will give a preconcert lecture at 2:30 pm in Bevens Music Room, located adjacent to Brown Chapel.
