Feel the Music and the joys of the holiday season!
The Santa Maria Philharmonic will lift your spirits with ‘Sounds of JUBILANT HOLIDAYS’, on Friday December 6th at the First United Methodist Church, with music by Handel, Bach and Boyce. Don't miss this holiday tradition with an all-Baroque program!
The lively and expressive dance movements of Bach’s Orchestral Suite No.3 will surely touch your heart, while the energized counterpoint between soloists and orchestra in his Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 will keep you on your toes. Soloists from within the regular orchestra personnel will again rise to the occasion in Handel’s Concerto Grosso Op. 6, offering engaging discourse between soloists and orchestra. Also included on the program is the charming Symphony No. 1, by lesser known English composer William Boyce, to complete an evening of truly jubilant music.
Be sure to arrive early for a preconcert lecture, delving into the music, and life and times of the composers. Lecture starts at 6:50, and is included with the ticket.
