Wisconsin’s Sheboygan Symphony to live-stream three programs, beginning in March

Posted on: March 9, 2021

“The phrase ‘live streamed from the Weill Center’ is in effect through May for the Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra,” writes Warren Gerds in Monday’s (3/8) WFRV-TV (northern Wisconsin). “For COVID-19 pandemic reasons, three virtual performances are scheduled from the Weill Center for the Performing Arts [in Sheboygan]…. On March 13 … the orchestra’s string and wind sections will take turns in an eclectic program” of Ching-Chu Hu’s Spheres of Influence for string sextet; Rimsky-Korsakov’s String Sextet in A Major; and, for winds, Ibert’s Trois pieces breves; Amy Beach’s Pastorale; William Grant Still’s Miniatures for woodwind quintet; and Gounod’s Petite Symphonie. The orchestra’s percussion section will be featured in an April 10 program of music by John Alfieri, Nigel Westlake, Bob Becker, Andy Akiho, Molly Joyce, Carlos Chavez, Ivan Trevino, and Christopher Rouse. A May 8 program of “works seldom heard in the concert hall” will include music by Copland, Tchaikovsky, and Louise Farrenc. “The orchestra previously this season presented programs from the Weill Center on Dec. 12 and Feb. 13.”
