5 Exciting Things Happening Right Now
The Lake Geneva Symphony Orchestra is not able to meet as a full orchestra right now. However, there is so much going on to be excited about as we wait for the right time to resume playing together. In the coming days, we’ll highlight 5 ways our players and audiences are engaging in our 2020-21 Season Reimagined.
The first exciting thing happening is Chamber Music!
Beethoven’s nine symphonies are incredible pieces of music, but did you know he also wrote 17 string quartets? Brahms composed four symphonies, but he also wrote a wide range of music for ensemble sizes of two to six players. Most of the same composers that LGSO audiences hear at symphonic concerts have also showcased their expert compositional craftsmanship in their work for smaller chamber ensembles. There are currently multiple ensembles of between 2 and 12 musicians exploring this repertoire for reduced numbers. In the process, LGSO players have the opportunity to safely continue making music with others.
