Firelands Symphony Orchestra Concert

 Sunday, May 16, 2021 
3:00pm-4:00pm  
Steele Memorial Bandstand

Join us for a special spring concert featuring North Coast Winds Quintet presented by the Firelands Symphony Orchestra.

North Coast Winds Quintet opens the 2021 FSO Around Town Tour at Lakeside Chautauqua’s Steele Memorial Bandstand. The Quintet is comprised of several FSO musicians including Principal Kimberly Zaleski (flute); along with Arleigh Savage (bassoon), Adrian Gonzalez (oboe) and joined by Ben Chen (clarinet) and Emily Shelley (horn).

The concert program will be a high-octane trip through time and space, culture and place. American-powerhouse composer Valerie Coleman weaves urban-classical roots with a rip-roaring ride through eastern Europe in her virtuoso showpiece for woodwind quintet, Tzigane. Like a modern-day and musical Silk Road, Tzigane brings you the exquisite and charged fruits of cultural exchange. The journey into this part of the world continues with thrilling Slavonic strains in an arrangement of Antonín Dvořák’s Serenade for Winds, Op. 44 by Jesper Jerkert. With “safety in numbers” meaning smaller rather than larger gatherings these days, we embrace Jerkert’s inventive distillation of twelve instruments to five. And it all kicks off with the sinewy, chromatic trails of the Bozza Scherzo for wind quintet, a post-impressionistic nod to the French origin of the title Tzigane and the atmospheric history of previous works by the same name. Stay safe with this virtual voyage of surprising parallels and infectious grooves!
