Sinfonietta presents night of classical music

March 4, 2010

Writer: Writer: Laura Di Giordano

The Brigham Young University-Idaho Department of Music will present a night of classical music for the entire community at 7:30 p.m., Friday, March 19, in the Ruth H. Barrus Concert Hall.

The Sinfonietta event will feature Franz Schubert's Symphony No. 5, Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, and John Rutter's Suite for String Orchestra. The performance will also include BYU-Idaho Concerto Festival winners Katelynn Chase and Holly Preslar, performing Francis Poulenc's Concerto in D Minor for Two Pianos.

"A two-piano concerto is what sets the performance apart from other orchestra performances," Chase said. "It is not often you see a two piano concerto performed with an orchestra work."

The BYU-Idaho Sinfonietta is a chamber-size orchestra drawn from members of the auditioned Symphony Orchestra. Sinfonietta will represent BYU-Idaho in a tour to Canada and the northwest in April.

The Sinfonietta's performance will cost $3 for BYU-Idaho students and $6 for the general public. Event dress is required.
