Last Concert of this Season...

Next Saturday is the last Odysseus Chamber Orchestra concert of the this season and, if you're interested in classical music, then you should book a ticket!

For three to four years Ludwig van Beethoven toiled over creating the masterpiece of Symphony No. 5, while also crafting the beginning of the Tremate, empi, tremate (three voices and an orchestra), Piano Sonata No. 21 (piano), Notturno (viola and piano), Christus am Olberge (three voices, a chorus, and an orchestra), Ich bin der Schneider Kakadu (violin, viola, and piano), Piano Sonata No. 22 (piano), Fidelio (voices, chorus, and an orchestra), Triple Concerto (violin, cello, piano, and an orchestra), Piano Sonata No. 23 (piano), An die Hoffnang (voice and a piano), Piano Concerto No. 4 (two violins, viola, cello, double bass, and piano and another version with a piano and an orchestra), Symphony No. 2 (violin, cello, and a piano), Fidelio (voices, chorus, and an orchestra), Violin Concerto (violin and an orchestra), String Quartets (two violins, viola, and cello), Symphony No. 4 (orchestra), Coriolan (orchestra), Piano Concerto (piano and an orchestra), Cello Sonata (cello and piano), Mass (four voices, chorus, and an orchestra), Overture (orchestra), Cello Sonata No. 3 (cello and a piano), and starting on Symphony No. 6 (orchestra).  Little bit of a slacker, right?  We're not going to have to wait that long, Saturday!  And there's a special performer, Russell Houston, on the cello.  Russell is an award winning musician born in Dallas and studying in Los Angeles at the Colburn School.  If you are hoping to have your classic music cravings indulging you can buy your tickets at the McKinney Performing Arts Center.
