The concert will feature works associated with dance, including Beethoven’s “Prometheus Overture,” Borodin’s “Polovtsian Dances” and Marquez’s “Danzon No. 2.” In addition, the Chamber Orchestra will perform several waltzes from Brahm’s “Liebeslieder Waltzer,” as well as “Libertango” by Astor Piazzolla.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the concert is free and open to the public.

He received his undergraduate in music education from Grove City College with a dual emphasis in voice and violin, his master’s in conducting from Carnegie Mellon University and his doctorate in music education from Shenandoah University.
