Chapel Hill Philharmonia Concert Features Joyful Music

CHAPEL HILL, NC — Posted November 12, 2017

On Sunday, December 10, the Chapel Hill Philharmonia will play “Out of the Woods”, a concert of three beloved familiar compositions. Guest conductor Evan Feldman will lead the orchestra in Humperdinck’s “Overture to Hansel and Gretel,” based on his popular opera in which two children outwit a witch in the woods.

Khachaturian was an Armenian composer known for his stirring movie music, ballets and incidental music for plays. The orchestra will perform in its entirety his “Masquerade Suite,” taken from the play “Masquerade” by the 19th century Russian romantic poet, M. Lermontov. Enchanting, colorful dance themes alternate with beautiful lyric melodies.

Concluding the program is Beethoven’s Symphony #2, a cheerful and energetic piece, created as the composer worried about his growing deafness and persevered through a depression.

The concert will begin at 7:30 pm in Moeser Auditorium in Hill Hall on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus. Admission is free.
