Mozart To Mikado | October 14, 2017

The 2017 – 2018 season begins with music of Mozart as the Salem Chamber Orchestra presents the beautiful Andantino from Mozart’s Concerto for Flute and Harp and Mozart’s Epistle Sonata in E flat. The American Chamber Chorale and Salem Chamber Orchestra join forces to present a missa brevis of Mozart: Vesperae Solennes de Confessore (K339).
 
The concert continues with the Salem Chamber Orchestra playing the overture from Marriage of Figaro followed by well-loved Mozart arias and the beautiful trio from Cosi fan tutte, “Soave sia il vento” by some of the ACC’s very talented singers. Highly entertaining selections from Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado provide a humorous and foot-tapping finish. Mikado selections include  “As some day it may happen”. Also known as the list song, it jokingly names people we don’t think would be missed, should they disappear. The humorous words were written by several talented Chorale members.
