LCCC Civic Orchestra to Debut Composer’s Newest Work

Internationally recognized composer Jeffrey Mumford will debut his “two rhapsodies for ‘cello and strings” at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, May 1 at Lorain County Community College’s Stocker Arts Center.

{mosimage}The rhapsodies will be performed by the LCCC Civic Orchestra with special guest and acclaimed cellist Tanya Ell of the Cleveland Orchestra. Ell is known for the precision and passion she brings to both new and traditional music.

Tickets are $7 for adults; $6 for LCCC students, staff and seniors 65 and older; and $5 each for groups of 15 or more. Tickets may be purchased online at www.lorainccc.edu/stocker, or by calling the Stocker Arts Center box office at 800-995-5222 (ext. 4040) from 12-6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Tickets are also available at the box office, located in the lobby of the Stocker Arts Center.

Mumford is an LCCC Distinguished Visiting Professor and lives in Oberlin. He is widely recognized as one of the major voices in American music. His newest work is composed with two movements (I.  revisiting variazioni elegiaci . . . within the fabric of caressing air, and II. echoing fields . . . spreading light)  and explores color and lyricism in an ethereal soundscape.
The concert will also include Gabriel Fauré’s delightfully lyrical “Dolly Suite, Op. 56,” and Paul Hindemith’s robustly exuberant “Symphonic Dances” (1937).

The Civic Orchestra is comprised of professional, amateur, and student musicians from Lorain County and neighboring communities.
