Posted: November 7, 2012

LCCC CIVIC BAND AND CIVIC ORCHESTRA TO PERFORM ON NOVEMBER 18

The Lorain County Community College Civic Band and the LCCC Civic Orchestra will each perform a concert on Sunday, November 18 at Stocker Arts Center.

The LCCC Civic Band, under the direction of Mark Wainwright, will perform at free concert at 3 p.m. The concert will be the first of the band’s 2012-2013 season.

All of the selections in the Civic Band program are great works that were originally composed for orchestra, and then transcribed for band. 

The LCCC Civic Orchestra, under the direction of Robert Beckstrom will perform at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. performance are $8 for adults, $7 for LCCC students, staff and seniors age 65 and older. Discount tickets for groups of 15 or more are $6 and must be reserved in advance. To purchase tickets, call (440) 366-4040 or visit http://www.stockerartscenter.com/.

The Civic Orchestra concert will feature two well-known and treasured masterworks, “Brandenburg Concerto #1 in F BWV 1046,” by Johann Sebastian Bach, and “Symphony #40 in G minor, K. 550, G. 123,” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.  The Bach work was the first of the famous six Brandenburg concertos that he presented to Christian Ludwig in 1721. Regal and intricate, this concerto has all of the elements that place Bach’s music on the very top shelf.  The often heard Mozart symphony, his second to last, was composed in 1788 – originally intended for the opening of a casino.  Profound and beautiful, this piece shows Mozart’s seldom-revealed dark side.

Beginning the concert will be a jewel from the American Neo-Classical movement, Elliott Carter’s “Elegy for String Orchestra,” which was composed in 1952. Carter passed away on November 5, 2012, at the age of 103.
