WSSU Chamber Orchestra Concert

Join us for a free concert by the Winston Salem State University Chamber Orchestra on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at 6pm at The Arts Place, 502 Main Street, Danbury.

The Chamber Orchestra plays music both popular and classical. Expect to hear a mix of styles from the Classical Genres to Jazz to Pop styles. The group recently participated in a two-year project studying works by African-American composers who wrote in the 1890-1920 String Band style. Over the past ten years, the group has performed symphonies by Haydn, Gluck, and Dvorak, string works by Edvard Grieg, Felix Mendelssohn, and Henry Purcell, works by African and African American composers such as Three Nigerian Dances by Samual Akpabot, Umoja by Valerie Coleman, and Noveletten by Samuel Coleridge Taylor, and pop songs such as “Georgia on My Mind,” “Tainted Love,” “What Is Love?” and the Beatles song “Blackbird,” to name but a few.
