Event Image Willamette Pro Musica: Chamber Orchestra Concert
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Willamette Pro Musica is a chamber orchestra comprised of students and faculty with the goal of performing at the highest level.  The orchestra offers the rare opportunity for students to perform in real-world/professional setting alongside their music professors. This ensemble will also offer our faculty the chance to perform concertos with their colleagues and students. The collaborative nature of this ensemble is what makes it so special. 

We have chosen a diverse program for our first concert that will feature our wonderful violin professor Daniel Rouslin on Mendelssohn's beloved Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64. 

General Admission: $10
Students: $8


Martenizza – Piet Swerts (Belgian Living Composer)

Piet Jozef Swerts (b. November 14, 1960, Tongeren). Belgian composer, conductor and pianist of international acclaim; his large catalog of more than 240 works includes stage, orchestral, chamber, choral, vocal, and piano works. Dr. Swerts studied at the Leuven College of Arts (LUCA) Campus Lemmens in Leuven, where he obtained ten first prizes, and, for the first time in the history of the same institute, the special Prize Lemmens Tinel for composition and piano with great distinction. He is Professor of Composition, Piano and Analysis at the same institute, now Department of Drama and Music associated with the Catholic University of Leuven.

Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64 – Felix Mendelssohn featuring Dan Rouslin

Mendelssohn -  There is perhaps no more popular or beloved violin concerto than Felix Mendelssohn’s masterpiece in e minor.  The Violin Concerto was the first significant concerto for violin since Beethoven’s of 1806, and was the last until the concertos of Bruch in 1868, and Tchaikovsky and Brahms, both written in 1878.

Symphony No. 104 in D Major "London" – Franz Joseph Haydn

Haydn -  This is Haydn's last symphony (104!) Following the première of the “London” Symphony, the critic for the Morning Chronicle wrote that “for fullness, richness, and majesty, in all its parts, [it] is thought by some of the best judges to surpass all [Haydn’s] other compositions. […] That, for fifty years to come Musical Composers would be little better than imitators of Haydn; and would do little more than pour water on his leaves.” The work pushed the boundaries of the Classical ideal in its time. It is one of Haydn's most boloved and popular symphonies.  

Wine Tasting and Zena Outdoor Concert
4:00 PM - 7:30 PM
