Flights of Fancy
With Ron Francois, Violin
The Concert Orchestra, conducted by Leslie Stewart, performs music inspired by birds—whether in flight or flapping their wings around the barnyard! The program features faculty artist Ron Francois performing Vaughan Williams’ “The Lark Ascending.” The concert opens with “Of Glorious Plumage” by Richard Meyer, led by graduate conducting student, Andrew Mendizabal. David Kechley’s “Funky Chicken,” originally composed for the Kronos String Quartet, concludes the concert.
