SCCO Season Finale

Sunday, June 11, 2023

Sullivan County Chamber Orchestra
2023 Season Finale

Sunday, June 11th, 2 PM

Delaware Valley Arts Alliance (DVAA) welcomes Sullivan County Chamber Orchestra (SCCO) to the Tusten Theatre,  Sunday, June 11th, at 2 PM for their Season Finale. The program features works by Coleridge-Taylor and Dvořák. 

Dvořák was a master of combining folk elements of his Slovak homeland and finding inspiration in African-American music during his stay in the United States to create a truly unique voice that became a global sensation. Not too far from the Czech Republic, a young Anglo-African composer named Samuel Coleridge-Taylor was composing his first monumental work, the Clarinet Quintet in F-sharp minor. His teachers had doubts that this young man would be able to escape the influence of Brahms, who also wrote an extraordinary clarinet quintet, but Coleridge-Taylor found his voice through inspiration from Dvořák to create a glorious piece of music that is not quite English, not quite American, and not quite African. When this piece was presented to his teacher Charles Villiers Stanford, his only response was, “You’ve done it, my boy!”   

This remarkable quintet by Coleridge-Taylor will be performed alongside Dvořák’s String Quartet no. 10 (occasionally called the “Slavonic Quartet”) to show how these two unique composers have a common thread shared between the two.  

Featured performers include Akiko Hosoi on violin, Noah Field on Viola, Julia Henderson on Cello, Andrew Cho on Clarinet, and more to be announced.
