Gifted Los Angeles student musicians join visiting members of the Amherst College Symphony Orchestra to present a special New Year’s concert of “Great Fifth Symphonies” at UCLA on Saturday, January 5, 2013. The combined forces perform as a new benefit ensemble–“Orchestra of the Angels”–which will donate all net ticket proceeds to local youth orchestras.
The concert, led by Amherst Symphony Orchestra Music Director Mark Lane Swanson, will open with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s rousing overture to the opera The Magic Flute, followed by the ebullient Fifth Symphony in B-flat major of Franz Schubert. After intermission, the “Orchestra of the Angels” will close with the turbulent yet triumphant Fifth Symphony in C minor of Ludwig van Beethoven.
The January 5th performance will be presented at Schoenberg Hall at the Herb Alpert School of Music at UCLA and will begin at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 and may be purchased at the door or by calling the UCLA Ticket Office at (310) 825-2101.
