The picturesque area of Bohemia comes alive in our spring concert which features music from composers Dvorak and Smetana. Our featured soloist, violinist Nancy DiNovo is back by popular demand and will perform Dvorak’s Violin Concerto, a work full of beautiful melodies inspired by Czech folk songs and dances. Completing the program will be the lively Slavonic Dances by Dvorak as well as Smetana’s most beloved work, The Moldau.
Dee Daniels! Once you attend one of Dee’s concerts and hear her amazing and unique combination of jazz, gospel and blues you will always want more! Beloved local singer Dee Daniels has had a very diverse musical career. She has sung with many of the legends of jazz including Benny Green and Toots Thielemans; sung for the King and Queen of Belgium’s 25th Wedding Anniversary, performed in Twyla Tharp’s musical Come Fly Away. She has performed in Africa, Australia, throughout South and North America and all over Europe. Dee has shared the stage with orchestras across the United States and Canada and now the Richmond Orchestra and Chorus are thrilled to be performing with her in this very special concert. The Chorus will offer a gospel-style set of pieces, while the Orchestra backs Dee up in some of her jazz favourites. This will be an evening not to be missed!
