The Gateway Chamber Orchestra’s first concert of 2018 is The Masterworks Series: Historic Pairing, coming to Franklin on Jan. 22.
This concert features pieces that commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the Gateway Chamber Orchestra.
The works performed will be Clint Needham’s Urban Sprawl, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Serenade for Winds in C-minor and Richard Strauss’s Le bourgeois gentilhomme.
Clint Needham’s high energy Urban Sprawl sets the stage for a memorable anniversary. The GCO tackles Strauss’ daunting score, Le bourgeois gentilhomme, nine years to the week since it first paired Mozart and Strauss in its inaugural installment of its Grammy-nominated “Wind Serenades.”
“It is hard to imagine that it has been nearly 10 years since a gathering of musical friends paired together Mozart and Strauss under the banner of Gateway,” Gateway Chamber Orchestra Music Director Gregory Wolynec said. “Now, more than 6 subscription seasons later, national recognition, Grammy awards for our producer and an identifiable approach to the great Viennese masters, we are excited to reconnect with Mozart and Strauss on a concert also featuring the energetic Urban Sprawl by Clint Needham.”
