Delaware Symphony's Chamber Series concludes next week

Apr 10, 2019

The Delaware Symphony Orchestra (DSO) plays its final Chamber Series concert of the season next week in Wilmington.

 

 


The symphony’s executive director Alan Jordan calls the concert “a very fun and interesting program,” featuring the DSO’s 34-piece Chamber Orchestra, “I think in my three-and-a-half-years here, it’s the largest Ensemble we’ll have presented as part of the Chamber Series.”

Next Tuesday’s performance (April 16, 2019) at Wilmington’s Hotel du Pont, will feature a chamber orchestra of 34 DSO players, conducted by David Amado, “which is what is needed for the piece on the second half. Mozart’s Penultimate Symphony - the Symphony No. 40 in G Minor. It’s one of his most famous and popular Symphony’s,” Jordan said.

The performance will also feature works of American composer Aaron Copland, Bela Bartok - a Hungarian composer.

Jordan says the concert will be in memory of Dorothy Chamber Flynn, a former Delaware Symphony development director.

 

Tickets for the April 16 concert are $62 ($16 for students 21 and under, with ID) and may be ordered online at www.delawaresymphony.org, or by calling the Delaware Symphony office at 302-656-7442.

Admission includes complimentary Champagne as well as the Hotel’s beloved macaroons and a variety of desserts from their award-winning pastry kitchen during intermission.
