The Simpson College Community Orchestra, under the baton of Dr. Mike Eckerty, will perform the works of Schubert, Handel, Bizet, and Dvorak during its spring concert. Following the hour-long performance, there will be a reception at which members of the audience may visit with the orchestra musicians. The concert and the reception are free, open to the public, and family-friendly.
The orchestra will welcome guest artist Suzanne Lommler, mezzo-soprano, to sing "Ombra mai fu" from the opera Xerxes by Handel. In the fall of 2018 Ms. Lommler will be singing the title role of Xerxes in a production by the Haymarket Opera Company in Chicago.
The concert will include the popular Carmen Suite #1. This suite includes the perennial favorite, the "Toreador Song".
Bookending the performance are Schubert's Rosamunde Overture and Dvorak's Slavonic Rhapsody #2 in g minor, two Romantic treasures.
