Alexandria, Va. - Conducted by Assistant Director Capt. Ryan J. Nowlin, the Marine Chamber Orchestra will kick off its 2017 Summer Series with Antonio Vivaldi’s well-known and oft performed work, The Four Seasons, Opus 8, featuring concertmaster Staff Sgt. Karen Johnson as violin soloist. Following Vivaldi’s famous work, the orchestra will perform Max Richter’s The Four Seasons Recomposed, a reconstruction of Vivaldi’s music, using only a small portion of the original work, but in a type of loop similar to dance music. This piece will feature assistant concertmaster Master Sgt. Regino Madrid as violin soloist. There will be no pre-concert ensemble performance prior to this concert. The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, June 17 at Northern Virginia Community College's Schlesinger Concert Hall in Alexandria, Va. Free, no tickets required.
