ECO Jan 2015

Mark Laycock conducts the English Chamber Orchestra with Ofer Falk and Stephanie Gonley as soloists in Philadelphia for a performance of Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante. The evening will also feature Robin Holloway’s Ode for four winds, commissioned for the ECO 30 years ago.

This will be a benefit concert for Musicopia.

Musicopia’s mission description:

“to bring a vibrant combination of music performance and education to students and communities throughout the Delaware Valley, with a particular focus on geographical areas that lack adequate music programs or are cut off from the region’s rich cultural life. With the goal of inspiring a deep love and knowledge of great music, Musicopia’s programs promote the transformative powers of music, the value of musical discipline and an appreciation of cultural diversity.”

Scheide Concerts is the sponsor of this concert.
