Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle presents Mozart

Venue: Duke Arts Council, Durham

Program:

W.A. Mozart: Divertimento in F Major; ​Adagio and Fugue; Gran Partita

We are BIG fans of Wolfgang here at the COT. But who isn’t? The strings and winds take the stage independently of one another for this unique program. The COT strings start things off by showcasing the lighter and darker sides to this compositional genius, while the COT winds tackle his epic Gran Partita. Have you ever heard of a basset horn? This is your chance to find out more!

Durham Symphony Orchestra presents Compositions by Her

Venue: Hayti Heritage Center, Durham

Program: In honor of Women’s History Month and the International Day of the Woman (March
8th), The Durham Symphony and Maestro William Henry Curry invite you to experience
Compositions by Her: A Celebration of Women in Music. The concert will take place at the
Hayti Heritage Center on March 3, 2024, at 3pm.

The concert will feature works by two outstanding American composers, Libby Larsen
and Florence Price. Larsen’s song cycle Sonnets from the Portuguese is based on the
poetry of Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Our performance will feature the return to Hayti
of acclaimed soprano soloist LaToya Lain, renowned (among other things) for her
performance in the opera Sanctuary Road. The Violin Concerto No. 2 by trail-blazing
African American composer Florence Price will be performed in its entirety by gifted
young American violinist Holly Nelson.

We will also pay homage to iconic female characters evoked by the music of Georges
Bizet. The program will include instrumental pieces and “Micaela’s Aria” from Carmen
(with soprano LaToya Lain). It will also include a salute to that opera’s unconventional
heroine and selections from Bizet’s incidental music to the play L’ Arlésienne (“The Girl
from Arles”).
