Featured in the second half of the concert will be vocal and orchestral music of Bedrich Smetana, from his folk opera, The Bartered Bride, or Prodana Nevesta.
Children's Choir founder and director, Janet Stotts, will conduct the choir and orchestra in the opening chorus from the opera, and selections from American composer Randall Thompson's delightful Frostiana.
Also on the concert, will be the two winners of this year's Anchorage Civic Orchestra's high school concerto competition, performing from concerti by Mozart and Luigi Boccherini.
The orchestra itself will perform Les Sylphides by Chopin, and Three Dances from The Bartered Bride.
This will be an exciting young peoples' concert, and is very inexpensive Fur Rendezvous Saturday afternoon fare. I'll be performing in the trombone section this concert, instead of on my regular instrument with the ACO, the tuba.
