The Amadeus Chamber Symphony will perform “Amadeus in Saint Cloud Concert” at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 8 at the Church of Saint Augustine in St. Cloud.
The show is free though free will donations are requested.
The show will include:
Edward Elgar’s “Serenade for strings,” Wolgang A. Mozart’s “Symphony #31 (‘Paris’),” Ottorino Resphigi’s “Ancient Airs and Dances — Suite #1″ and George F. Handel’s “Concerto #24.”
The symphony has been performing in Central Minnesota for 22 years. Most members are musicians from the area and have been with the ensemble since its beginning. They mainly perform music written for chamber orchestras, but will perform major symphonic works. It was always the ensemble’s plan to establish a performing tradition in the city of St. Cloud, giving audiences the opportunity to see their work without having to travel to the St. John’s University campus. The Feb. 8 concert reflects that goal.
The concert will have a special tribute to member R. Dennis, Layne, clarinet, who is retiring from teaching this year and moving to another area.
The symphony also participates in the annual “Share a Stand concert, which has high school performers playing alongside the experienced musicians.
