Shoreline Community Orchestra Presents: “A Classical Afternoon”
November 24, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm$15.00
The Shoreline Community Orchestra, formerly the Shoreline Symphony, opens its 2019-20 season with “A Classical Afternoon” on Sunday, November 24 at 3:00pm at The Playhouse at White Lake! The Shoreline Community Orchestra is led by conductor Dr. John Blakemore, the band director for Grand Rapids Christian Schools, who holds a Doctorate of Musical Arts from Michigan State University. The orchestra was established in September 2012 by Muskegon Community College and its founding director, the late S. Annette Jurcevic.
Appropriately titled “New Beginnings,” the orchestra’s eighth season launches with the ensemble’s debut in the Whitehall area. “A Classical Afternoon” will feature the following works:
· Edward Elgar’s Serenade for String Orchestra, Op. 20
· Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Serenade in C Minor, K. 388
· Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8, Op. 88
Preceding the concert at 2:30pm, Blakemore will present an informal discussion in which audience members are invited to learn about the background of the pieces being performed. Admission is $11 in advance and $15 at the door. Children under 18, and accompanied by an adult, receive free admission. Advance tickets may be purchased online at www.theplayhouseatwhitelake.org.
