The Music Department at Edgewood College is pleased to announce a celebratory concert to mark the 25th anniversary of the Edgewood Chamber Orchestra.
The program features audience favorites, such as the Debussy’s Petite Suite and the Marriage of Figaro Overture by Mozart. There is no admission charge, but donations to the Edward Walters Music Scholarship are accepted. This scholarship fund directly benefits Edgewood College students participating in ensembles.
A reception will follow the concert in the Washburn Heritage Room.
Founded in 1993 through a generous endowment established by Edgewood College benefactors William O. Hart and Vernon Sell, the Edgewood Chamber Orchestra fulfills a unique role at Edgewood College and in the Madison Community. Hart and Sell envisioned hosting a permanent in-house chamber orchestra that would provide Edgewood College students and community members access to high-quality performances and unique educational opportunities. Their dream remains vital today, as the ensemble contributes directly to the advancement of music students by giving them the rare opportunity arrange for the ensemble, perform with the group as selected soloists, and to conduct the ensemble. It also provides students and the community exposure to world class soloists and distinctive programming.
