MOTHER'S DAY MAGIC

Marine Chamber Orchestra

Sunday, May 8 | 2 PM

Col. Jason K. Fettig, conducting

Mimi Stillman, guest soloist

Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center, Northern Virginia Community College, Alexandria, VA

The Marine Chamber Orchestra is delighted to partner with internationally acclaimed flutist and Music Director of Dolce Suono, Mimi Stillman. Mimi will play a brand new Concerto written especially for her by composer Zhou Tian, along with a new arrangement for flute and orchestra of Argentinian composer Astor Piazolla’s famous Libertango. Of all the classical overtures that could open such a program, Mozart’s brilliant curtain raiser from his opera The Magic Flute is among the most fitting, and rounding out this Mother’s Day extravaganza is a performance of Maurice Ravel’s gorgeous suite of music taken from his ballet based on the traditional collection of children’s stories in Mother Goose.
