Day 88 / 102 - West Virginia Symphony Orchestra

We were so fortunate last week to see the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra.  The Orchestra, which usually performs in Charleston, had a special performance near Beckley last Friday night.  Best part?  It was free to the public!!  We were thrilled.

The orchestra performed two pieces -- Mozart's Violin Concerto K218 and Mendelssohn's Symphony #3.  Actually, this performance was planned at a perfect time to coincide with our curriculum.  For six weeks every spring, we study the orchestra, instruments, and various composers at our Classical Conversations campus.  We are right in the middle of that unit study, with one of our composers this spring being Mozart.  Today in class, we listened to and analyzed part of his Piano Concerto #22.
