Cameron University Civic Symphony prepares for fall concert
Conducted by Dr. Kirsten Underwood, the Cameron University Civic Symphony is made up of Cameron students and faculty, area community members, current and retired music educators, and local high school students from Lawton and Altus, Lawton Public Schools strings faculty and qualified high school students.
The concert will cover a wide array of music.
“Although diverse in style and tempo, these pieces transition seamlessly to take the audience on a musical journey that evokes a wide range of emotions,” Underwood said
The program will begin with “Chorale and Minuet” composed by J.S. Bach and arranged by Elliot Del Borgo.
“The performance of a Bach chorale tune is a soothing and beautiful way to begin a concert, and the tune of the cheerful minuet will be recognized by all attending,” Underwood said.
Vivaldi’s “Concerto for Strings in E minor, RV 134” will follow. Known primarily as the composer of the Four Seasons concertos for solo violin, Vivaldi was a prolific composer for string ensemble, completing about 500 concertos alone.
