Music lovers are in for a treat this November as the Catskill Symphony Orchestra takes the stage for a stirring performance titled "Musical Portraits." Scheduled for November 19th at 3 pm, this unique concert is organized as a special fundraiser for the Clinton Symphony Orchestra of the Mohawk Valley. The concert will take place at the Clinton Performing Arts Complex located at 75 Chenango Street in Clinton. "Musical Portraits" is more than just a musical rendezvous—it is a tribute to the late Charles Schneider. As the esteemed music director and conductor of both orchestras for many years, Schneider’s influence on the musical realm is immeasurable. This concert not only honors his legacy but also symbolizes the deep bond between the two orchestras and the paramount importance of live classical music. Guided by the expert baton of Glen Cortese, attendees will embark on a symphonic journey that paints vivid imagery. The concert commences with Respighi's mesmerizing "Trittico Botticelliano." As the melodies waft through the air, they pave the way for Brahms' iconic "Variations on a Theme of Haydn." The finale, Ravel’s dreamlike "Mother Goose" in its full ballet rendition, promises to enchant every soul present, etching a lasting impression of musical brilliance. As the two orchestras join forces, this event becomes a testament to the enduring power of musical camaraderie and the indelible mark a single individual can leave on the art form.
