ORCHESTRA PRESENTS NOVEMBER CONCERTS
The North Oregon Coast Symphony begins its 2023-2024 season with two classical music concerts in November. The programs will feature two soloists. Diane Amos will play the Andante movement from Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21, made famous in the 1967 movie Elvira Madigan. Jude Matulich-Hall will play the spooky
violin solo inviting the skeletons to dance in Saint-Saëns’s Danse Macabre. Other selections will include Mendelssohn’s Wedding March, Strauss’s Blue Danube Waltz, Berlioz’s March Troyenne, Sibelius’s Finlandia, and Rimsky-Karsakov’s Procession of the Nobles.
The orchestra will perform the concerts on Saturday, November 18, at St. Catherine Episcopal Church (36335 N. Hwy. 101, Nehalem, OR) beginning at 3 pm, and Sunday, November 19, at the Charlene Larsen Performing Arts Center (588 16th St., Astoria, OR) beginning at 3 pm.
Admission for adults is $10; youth 18 and under are free, but those 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets will be sold at the door for the St. Catherine concert (cash or personal check only). Tickets for the Larsen Center concert will be sold online at LarsenCenter.org or by phone at 503 338 9132.
