Believe it or not, the Channel Islands Chamber Orchestra
is wrapping up its tenth season. We’re fast approaching a decade of exciting music of high quality presented to
local audiences by local players. And this season, we have taken a number
of significant steps upward and onward - please read on!
CHICO has presented
a gem of a season for 2012-2013 with stellar selections and performers throughout. Some of the highlights were:
John Biggs’ Concerto for Cello and Chamber Orchestra, played by Virginia Kron, who premiered the conceto in 1997, our
Youth Concert featuring the three winners of this year’s youth soloist competition, our choral spectacular and, of course,
our upcoming annual display of pianistic brilliance by Miriam Arichea.
The season's finale on June 1 and 2 will present Smetena's The
Moldau and Rachmaninoff's Vocalise, plus two outstanding works for Piano
and Orchestra: John Biggs' Variations on a Theme of Shostakovich and Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody
on a Theme of Paganini, with Miriam Arichea in the solo seat.
