The Chamber Orchestra will begin with Kirk Mosier’s arrangement of Carl Stamitz’s “Sonata II,” originally written for two violins but modified for string orchestra, and Robert Longfield’s arrangement of Clare Grundman’s “Fantasy on American Sailing Songs.”

After a short break, the Symphony Orchestra will perform Thomas Sleeper’s relatively new piece, named in honor of his young daughter, “Hana’s Day Out.” Sleeper is conductor of the University of Miami Symphony Orchestra in Coral Gable, Fla. The concert will conclude with Beethoven’s “Eighth Symphony.”
