The Windham Orchestra is delighted to perform at the Claremont (NH) Opera House as part of that city’s 250th Anniversary celebration and at the Brattleboro Union High School. The concerts feature Claremont native Melissa Richmond as flute soloist in the premiere of “Concerto for Flute Improviser and String Orchestra”, written specifically for the occasion by Kinan Azmeh. Syrian born Azmeh came to New Hampshire to participate in the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music’s Playing for Peace program and now returns annually as a faculty member there. This concerto inaugurates a series of 4 works by composers with locals ties commissioned in honor of the Orchestra’s 45th season. Two symphonies at the heart of the Classical repertoire, Mozart’s “Paris” and Schubert’s “Unfinished”, complete the program.
