Clinton Symphony reschedules January concert for March 17


CLINTON — The Clinton Symphony Orchestra of the Mohawk Valley has rescheduled its concert, previously scheduled Jan. 20 that was postponed due to inclement weather, to March 17 at the Clinton Performing Arts Center, 75 Chenango Ave.

Featured guest artists from the renowned Juilliard Opera department will include soprano Kathleen O’Mara and baritone Gregory Feldman on a program that will highlight music composed by Ben Moore and Ben Phelps, both natives of Clinton.

Music Director Charles Schneider has programmed a wide variety of styles and genres that covers three centuries of operatic favorites. Although much of the repertoire is Italian (Rossini, Puccini, Mascagni and Leoncavallo), the symphony will also highlight the music of French composers Bizet and Charpentier.

Music from Germany (“Hansel and Gretel”) and Vienna will round out the program. The concert will end with the famed “Lippen Schweigen” waltz from Franz Lehar’s “The Merry Widow.”’

The Charles Winter family Fund, headed by Katharine Winter and administrated by Richard G. Parker, has provided funds for student tickets, and college students require ID.
