North Georgia Chamber Symphony to perform in Spring Concert Series

North Georgia Chamber Symphony has several performances scheduled in its 2018 Spring Concert Series. The public is invited to attend the Spring Concert Series of the North Georgia Chamber Symphony. The first concert is scheduled for Friday, May 18 at 7 p.m. at the historic courthouse on the square, Blairsville. Saturday, May 19, at 7:30 p.m., at the United Methodist Church in Dahlonega is the date of the second concert. The final concert will be in Gainesville at the First Presbyterian Church on Sunday, May 20 at 4 p.m. The concerts in Blairsville and Dahlonega are free, and open to the public. The Gainesville concert is $15 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.

The program opener is Bela Bartok’s “Dances of Transylvania.” It’s lively, happy music written from his lifelong collection of folk music. The dances are “Bagpipers,” “Bear Dance,” and Finale. Guest soloist is Cellist Noah Johnson playing Joseph Haydn’s “Concerto for Cello and Orchestra in C Major.” Benjamin Britten’s “Simple Symphony” follows, using thematic material in the music he wrote as a child. Antonio Vivaldi’s “Sinfonia in b minor” concludes the “classical” pieces with “Such Good Luck” and the “Opening Theme from Downtown Abbey.” The program ends with Earl Scruggs’ “Foggy Mountain Breakdown.”
