The College of Charleston Orchestra will perform a spring concert conducted by Yuriy Bekker. The program will include Claude Debussy’s Petite Suite, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations (featuring cellist/faculty member Natalia Khoma), Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8 in G Major and a world premiere of The Overview Effect by College of Charleston composition student Will Goss.
The College of Charleston Orchestra is a small orchestra consisting primarily of music students from the College. Some of the students are non-music majors who are experienced performers that participate in order to stay active as musicians. Members of the Charleston Symphony also participate. Under the direction of Yuriy Bekker, Charleston Symphony Concertmaster and Principal Pops Conductor, the chamber orchestra performs twice each year.
