Marine Chamber Orchestra

Col. Jason K. Fettig, conducting

Anchoring this performance are beloved works of two masters: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Turkish” Violin Concerto and Jean Sibelius’ dramatic and heroic Second Symphony. Featured alongside these masterpieces is the contemporary music of a young composer you likely do not yet know. Front and center in this performance is the world première of SiHyun Uhm’s Yearning, the winner of the Marine Band’s inaugural Call for Scores, held in 2022. Her piece was selected from more than 100 submissions for its compelling form, shimmering beauty, and remarkable use of the sound and expressive qualities of the string orchestra.
