The Edgewood Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of conductor Blake Walter, presents a unique afternoon concert with three beautiful and somewhat rarely performed compositions: an Overture by the eighteenth-century Italian composer Domenico Cimarosa; Symphony No. 23 in D by W.A. Mozart; and Antonin Dvorak’s Czech Suite, featuring five dance movements.
Founded in 1993 via a generous endowment established by benefactors William O. Hart and Vernon Sell, the Edgewood Chamber Orchestra fulfills a unique role in the Madison community, providing high-quality performances and unique educational opportunities. The ensemble is the permanent, in-house chamber orchestra at Edgewood College.
