Paramount Theatre presents “Perchance to Dream” Orchestra concert

An afternoon of magic and dreams is in store in the upcoming Capital City Concerts "Perchance to Dream" Orchestra concert on Sunday, Nov. 18 at 3 p.m. at The Paramount Theatre.

This initiative unites two Vermont arts organizations, Montpelier's Capital City Concerts and The Paramount Theatre who come together for this first-time collaboration. The spell-binding program (which will be seen in Montpelier Saturday, Nov. 17) includes Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, Mendelssohn's Scherzo from A Midsummer Night's Dream, Wagner's Seigfried Idyll, Ravel's Introduction and Allegro, and Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante, K297b. The members of this 26-piece professional orchestra hail from the Cleveland Orchestra, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and NYC Ballet Orchestra. Soloists are Anna Reinersman-harp, Karen Kevra - flute, Randall Wolfgang - oboe, Daniel Gilbert-clarinet, Robert Wagner - bassoon, and Donna Dolson - French horn, Arturo Delmoni - concertmaster, conducted by Lou Kosma.

"This concert was planned in response to last season's sold-out 'Massively Mozart' orchestra presented in Montpelier. And this season's fall concert is even bigger and better and includes a host of remarkable soloists." said Capital City Concerts Artistic Director Karen Kevra.

The "Perchance to Dream" Concert welcomes back Daniel Gilbert, Cleveland Orchestra former associate principal clarinetist who is a regular on Capital City Concerts and won the audience with his performance of Mozart's Clarinet Concerto last season. Anna Reinersman, who plays with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra also returns to the spotlight along with her MET colleague Lou Kosma who will conduct. The other soloists are Karen Kevra - flute, Randall Wolfgang - oboe, Robert Wagner - bassoon, and Donna Dolson - French horn, and NYC Ballet Orchestra concertmaster Arturo Delmoni.

Tickets ($10 students, $20 adults) are available online at ParamountLive.org and at The Paramount Theatre Box Office located in downtown Rutland. Charge by phone orders can be placed by calling 802-775-0903.
