Tann: With the Heather and Small Birds
Mozart: Flute Concerto in D, K. 314
Jessica Sindell, flute
Beethoven: Symphony No. 2 in D Major

Sometimes music can seem so effortlessly crafted that it’s simply gliding in the air. Our composers in May applied a deft touch and a love for natural settings in their offerings. Welsh-born Hilary Tann combines the luminous colors of winds and strings to evoke a distinctly airborne setting in With the Heather and Small Birds.

Then The Cleveland Orchestra’s Jessica Sindell made her BlueWater Chamber Orchestra debut in the music of Mozart—his Concerto in D Major—filled with delightful flights of fancy and impressionable melodies. We completed our concert with the energetic and supremely confident music of Beethoven’s Second Symphony. While still owing a great debt to his classical models of Haydn and Mozart, Beethoven clearly strikes his own flight plan for music that reveals the heart of a hero.

The McGaffin Carillon Prelude

McGaffin Carillon

Part of the Church of the Covenant, it is one of only 185 carillons in North America. Its 47 bells weigh a total of about 15,000 lbs. and was played by special guest, Keiran Cantilina, at a console high in the tower.
