With Richard Egarr appearing as Philharmonia Baroque’s guest conductor, the program offers opportunities for seamless ensemble and individual virtuosity. Two Corelli masterworks — the Concerto Grosso Op. 6, No. 2 in F major, and the No. 10 in C major — are featured. Handel, who was greatly influenced by Corelli, is represented in the Concerto Grosso Op. 6, No. 1 in G major, and the No. 4 in A minor. Egarr, the music director and keyboardist of the Academy of Ancient Music since 2006, also serves as soloist in Handel’s Organ Concerto No. 15 in D minor. Muffat’s Sonata No. 5 in G major, from “Armonico tribute,” completes the lineup.
He will be the soloist in David Maslanka’s “Concerto for Trombone.” The program also includes “Danzon No, 2” by Arturo Márquez, “Armenian Dances, Part I” by Alfred Reed, and Frank Ticheli’s setting of “Shenandoah.”, Tickets are $17 for adults, $14 for seniors, and youth are free, They are available at the Lesher Center ticket office, by calling 925-943-7469, or at www.lesherartscenter.org, More more information, go duffel bag personalized dancer dance irish dance jig ghillie shoes celtic ballet girl monogrammed duffle travel gym monogrammed to www.ccwindsymphony.org..

Concertmaster Robin Mayforth took full advantage of her solo turn, which was sturdy and sweetly lyric, too. There was a sort of “en pointe” dance for clarinet and flute that sparkled. So did a number of the orchestral tuttis, especially those featuring a full array of brass — classy playing by the section, straight down to the tuba. And this crisp, spirited performance popped like a champagne bottle at its conclusion; like a good short story writer, Kamensek understands the value of a strong ending.
