Posted on: March 8, 2021

The Lubbock Symphony Orchestra in Texas will present an in-person chamber concert on March 9 featuring the work of Lubbock-based composers Jennifer Jolley and Peter Fischer. The concert at the Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences Crickets Theater will include Jolley’s Double Concerto for Violin and Fiddle and Fischer’s Sing Softly in the Cathedral arranged for contrabass solo, string ensemble, piano, and multiple percussion. The event features lighting and visual elements and is part of the orchestra’s spring SOUND! chamber concert series of music by contemporary composers. Also on the program are Kenji Bunch’s Until Next Time and Lowdown; Barbara York’s Moral Dilemmas (movements 2 and 4); Blake Tyson’s The Trees are Quiet; Scott Joplin’s Maple Leaf Rag and The Chrysanthemum; Shruthi Rajasekar’s Glow Dance; and Ervin T. Rouse’s Orange Blossom Special. At the concert, there will be security and temperature checks; socially distanced seating; and dismissal from the concert by section to avoid massing at the exits. The LSO is encouraging patrons to arrive between 15 and 30 minutes prior to the performance time to avoid unnecessary crowding.
