LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – On June 5, the Clear Lake Performing Arts Youth Orchestra and the newly formed Junior-Youth Orchestra will present their end-of-the year concert under the direction of Susan Condit.
The six-member Junior-Youth Orchestra will open the program with standard beginning tunes in three parts – “Lightly Row,” “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” and “Au Clair de la Lune.”
Four advanced members will end this portion of the program with “Trio in G” by Schradieck and Trio in C by De Beriot.
The seventeen-member Youth Orchestra, made up of students from middle school to college will begin their portion of the first half with “Raider’s March” by John Williams from the movie “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Arc.”
“The Basso,” a traditional tune arranged by Clovice A. Lewis Jr. will showcase “fast fingering” in gypsy style.
Lewis is a well-known local composer and cellist. The Emmy-nominated “Ashokan Farewell,” A favorite fiddle tune by Jay Unger, will feature a beautiful violin solo by Clayton Rudiger. It was the theme of the award-winning PBS special “The Civil War.” The first half will end with the amazing “M to the Third Power,” a minor meter mix composed by Carold Nunez.
The second half of the concert is a tribute to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and will feature “Amadeus,” “Rondo K. 80,” and “Ave Verum Corpus.”
“Amadeus” is from Mozart’s “Symphony No. 25” which was also the theme of the academy-award winning movie “Amadeus.”
Andi Skelton, Marta Fuller, Eleanor Cook, Austin Ison, Patricia Jekel and Clovice A. Lewis, Jr., all members of the Clear Lake Performing Arts Lake County Symphony and mentors to the students will join in playing their final piece, “Allegro Vivace,” from “The Hunt.”
