Our season finale opens with Aaron Copland’s Music for Movies. Drawn from his soundtracks for The City, Our Town, and Of Mice and Men, the suite is a quintessential example of Copland’s “Americana” style. We are thrilled to feature our Concertmaster, YuEun Gemma Kim, in Mendelssohn’s Concerto for Violin in D minor. While not as well known as the E Minor Concerto, Ms. Kim’s stellar musicianship will make this an automatic favorite. The Chamber Orchestra at St. Matthew’s and Choir and Soloists of St. Matthew’s Parish conclude the 2023 — 2024 season in grand style, with one of Mozart’s greatest choral works, the Solemn Vespers.
