Edgewood Chamber Orchestra 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 an overture by Rossini and also features music by the Spanish composer Manuel De Falla from his famous ballet “El Sombrero de Tres Picos” (“The Three-Cornered Hat”). Another of the accents in the program is Beethoven’s majestic Symphony No.1.
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.
Edgewood College is honored that the Music Department has been recognized by the readers of Madison Magazine with the Best of Madison 2017 Silver Award.
