Alexandria, Va. - The Marine Chamber Orchestra will perform a unique concert featuring only the collaboration of the string players and no conductor, similar to the style of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. The performance will include Johannes Brahms Liebeslieder Waltzes, arranged by Friedrich Hermann, and Joseph Haydn’s Concerto No. 2 in D for Cello and Orchestra, Opus 101, featuring principal cello Master Gunnery Sgt. Marcio Botelho as soloist. The highlight of the concert will be Arnold Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht, Opus 4. The symphonic poem was originally scored for string sextet and was influenced by the poem of the same name by Richard Dehmel. There will be no pre-concert ensemble performance prior to this concert. The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, July 29 at Northern Virginia Community College's Schlesinger Concert Hall in Alexandria, Va. Free, no tickets required.
