There’s something about the immediacy of live music that cannot be captured no matter how advanced the recording technology, but when it’s held in an intimate setting, the effect is all the more amplified.
As part of its on-going effort to draw closer to its audience and bring classical music to the heartlands, The Millenial Orchestra is holding a series of hour-long “mini, dinner-time” concerts, to be performed in smaller auditoriums (i.e. approximately 100 seater) where each section of the orchestra—strings, brasses and winds, will take turns to be featured.
This Christmas season, the performance, entitled “Christmas Concerto” will feature the strings playing the titular number “Christmas Concerto” by Arcangelo Corelli, composed around 1690. The brass section will give its rendition of Johann Pachelbel’s famous “Canon in D”, and the winds will perform other light-hearted, familiar classical favorites.
