UPDATE: Madison, Wis. (February 25, 2017) – The Edgewood Chamber Orchestra concert, scheduled for 2:30 pm, Sunday February 26, 2017, has been cancelled. The cancellation was caused by a heating issue in the performance venue.
Edgewood Chamber Orchestra’s first concert for 2017 presents the rarely performed oboe concerto by the 18th-century Italian composer Domenico Cimarosa. Oboist Malia Huntsman will perform along with the ECO under its music director, Dr. Blake Walter. The program opens with music by Rossini and also features Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1, one of the early symphonic masterpieces of the German composer.
Originally from Los Angeles, Malia Huntsman has been playing oboe since the age of fourteen. She holds an undergraduate degree in Oboe Performance from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, and a Master of Arts degree in Oboe Performance from Rice University.
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.
