Opus 2 Orchestra performs free public concerts in cooperation with Christian Life Church
Opus 2 Orchestra Presents An International Affair: Music from around the world
Opus 2 Orchestra will perform Saturday February 22 at 4 pm at Christian Life Church 900 Seventh Street Ext., Trafford. Our second concert of the season consists of pieces that feature musical styles from different countries, including Soon Hee Newbold’s “Arabian Dreams”, Francis Osentowski’s “ Fantasy on a Chinese Theme”, and “Capriccio Italien” by Pyotr Tchaikovsky.
Young musicians from all over Pittsburgh's eastern suburbs perform with Opus 2, which is designed to provide performance opportunities and instruction beyond those provided at school and private lessons. Adult mentors and co-learners also play with the group. A voluntary donation at the concert's conclusion will support the orchestra's expenses.
