The concert features a diverse program played by a 45 piece orchestra of talented, mostly professional musicians, along with some selected amateurs and a guest soloist featured at each concert. Conducting will be Alan Hawryluk, conductor of the orchestra for the past 47 years.
This week’s concert features Lisa Brooke on violin, and Jeanne Gabriel Pocius Dorismond on trumpet.
Praised for her "unusually intelligent and sensitive playing", Lisa Brooke is teaching violin and viola at Salem State University, and performed in NYC with the Orchestra of Saint Lukes', the NY Pops, the Brooklyn Philharmonic, the American Symphony Orchestra, the Queens Symphony Opera Orchestra, Eve Queller Opera and the American Composer's Orchestra, and has toured the US, Spain, Japan, Korea and Hong Kong with numerous ensembles. She has toured Spain with Solisti of the Metropolitan Opera, and worked under James Levine and Leonard Bernstein in the Music for Life Concerts, Carnegie Hall.
Jeanne Gabriel Pocius Dorismond has performed as a soloist in both classical and jazz venues throughout the United States, Canada, Italy and the Caribbean. Author of the internationally acclaimed trumpet textbook, "Trumpeting By Nature", she has students on six of the seven continents, and has served as a professor of music in Haiti since the summer of 2008. Jeanne is also founder and president of the international charity "Instrumental Change, Inc." which provides musical instruments and supplies to music students and professionals in Haiti, Africa, South America and in needy areas of the United States.
