LSO – YouTube String Suites!
The LaGrange Symphony Orchestra will open its colorful fall season with a virtual concert on YouTube. “Celebration & Surprise” will release Tuesday, September 28th, 2021 at 7:30 PM online. It is free to enjoy on a computer or mobile device via the LSO YouTube channel. The video is 40 minutes long, and you may watch this concert as many times as you like.
Filmed at the First United Methodist Church of LaGrange, this concert is all strings. It is lovely, fresh, audibly rich and vibrant. You will hear the string suites by Peter Warlock, Gustav Holst, and John Rutter performed by the LaGrange Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Richard Prior. The number of musicians is scaled-down from a usual concert, but the music is dynamic and full. Beautifully captured, this film gives you multiple views with close ups, sectionals, and full group angles.
Remember, “Celebration & Surprise” is not available to watch until 7:30 PM on September, 28th. It will be available to watch at any time after that release. Tip: if you have good quality speakers or headphones, you will appreciate the detail captured in this recording and also what this venue can produce acoustically.
