Welcome to the 19th Season of The Trinity Chamber Orchestra! Once again we are thrilled to present an outstanding season of magnificent music at our beautiful Bethesda location, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, with its gradually raked seating, acoustically rich setting, and free parking. (7500 Pearl Street, Bethesda MD. 20814, two blocks from the Bethesda Metro station on Metro’s Red Line at the corner of East-West Highway and Pearl Street.)
The mission of the Trinity Chamber Orchestra is to perform outstanding sacred and secular music from the Baroque period through the 21st century, all for the Honor and Glory of God, under the patronage of the most Holy Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
This season the TCO presents “A Season of Classics” – a kaleidoscope of all the colors and varieties of classical music through the years. Enjoy famous overtures, concertos, symphonies, serenades, suites, and vocal offerings from opera, film, Broadway and more.
Our September concert features some of the TCO’s own: Concert Master Jennifer Houck, Assistant Conductor Jeffry Newberger, and the TCO’s long-time protégée and prodigy Patricia Wnek, all together in Vivaldi’s Triple Violin Concerto. Mozart’s Overture to Don Giovanni and Brahms’s Serenade No.1 round out a sublime and satisfying program that epitomizes the most traditional Classical-era forms and harmonies.
November’s thrilling program displays the most Romantic colors in the classical music genre: Tchaikovsky’s Waltz from Eugene Onegin, Glazunov’s Symphony #1, and Grieg’s famous Piano Concerto. We are excited to welcome back Jason Solounias as our piano soloist. You will not want to miss these great show-stopping pieces!
In April, our kaleidoscope focuses on classical scenes from operas, Broadway shows, and films. Start with scenes from the Russian steppes in Borodin’s Prince Igor Overture, spin to a Mozart symphony from Amadeus, and then sparkle over to selections from Candide (for Bernstein’s 100th birthday) and other vocal works. Join the TCO orchestra and soloists in celebrating the 35th Anniversary of the Stone Ridge Junior Chorus with some special musical offerings.
Finally, in June we celebrate the full range of classical music through the years, with classics old and new. Our kaleidoscope spins from good old Papa Haydn’s Cello Concerto, with our principal cellist Amy Smith, through the Romantic scenery of Borodin’s musical tableau, to new 20th century classics by Walton, Khachaturian, and Mangani. And don’t forget our traditional Guest Conductor Encore! (Maybe with you as guest conductor?)
