Green Mountain College has the rare treat of hosting The Champlain Philharmonic Orchestra at Ackley Hall, Oct. 22 at 7:30 p.m. The program features a rousing set of works by some of the great Russian composers: Tchaikovsky, Borodin, and Prokofiev. The orchestra will be led by guest conductor, Matthew LaRocca. Featured on the program will be Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 performed by 18-year-old piano virtuoso, Gareth Cordery. As a rising young artist he has performed on both piano and cello and was recently the guest soloist (on piano) with the Bemidji Symphony Orchestra in Bemidji, Minn. The orchestra will also perform In the Steppes of Central Asia by Borodin, Montagues and Capulets from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, Suite No. 2 and Tchaikovsky’s Capriccio Italienne. The Champlain Philharmonic is a community orchestra that performs regularly in the Addison and Rutland regions of Vermont. Tickets are available at the door for $15 general admission, $10 seniors, and $5 students.
