“We are thrilled to bring another streaming and televised concert to our patrons during this time, and even more excited to showcase our musicians on stage with Ms. Nissman,” said WVSO President Joe Tackett.
“A Night of Eclectic Sounds” was originally recorded in late December from the Culture Center stage and features chamber music by musicians of the WVSO. Guest conductors Luke Zyla and Robert Turizziani alternate taking the lead throughout the brass portion of the program which includes chamber pieces like Fanfare from “La Peri” by Dukas and the Antique Suite by Horvit.
The second half brings local favorite, Barbara Nissman, to the stage on piano with members of the strings section to perform Schubert’s Piano Quintet in A major, most known as the “Trout Quintet”.
This concert is made possible thanks to our generous sponsors the Elliot Foundation, City National Bank, Jackson Kelly PLLC, and AC&S Incorporated. The WVSO thanks its loyal patrons for their continued support and engagement during this time.
