Under the baton of Maestro John Monks, the concert begins with the uplifting "Fruhlingsstimmen" (Voices of Spring) by Johann Strauss Jr. Heidi Connolly is featured in Mozart's stately "Andante in C for Flute and Orchestra" followed by a contemplative "Ancient Echoes of Time" (Douglas Wagner) and the frenetic "Russian Sailors Dance" (Gliere). Heidi Connolly joins Suzanne Monks and Sylvia Hartman in the "Trio for Flute, Oboe and Piano" (Madeleine Dring).
The first half of the program concludes with a charming four movement suite for Shakespeare's "As You Like It" (Roger Quilter). The second half opens with the passionate beguine "Temptation" (Freed and Brown). DeVern Pinnock displays his talents on guitar with "Cynthia's In Love" (Grish/White/Owen) and banjo on "Banjo Medley" (Arr. Herb Harrison).
Two pieces of a very different genre follow: "Entr'acte - Gavotte" from the opera "Mignon" (Ambrose Thomas) paired with a wicked swinging send-up, "Uncle Tom's Gavotte" (Herb Harrison), James Welty sings the romantic "It's Impossible" (Manzanero/Wayne). To insure that there is something for everyone, we end with "Surprise, Surprise" (Adapted, John Monks).,
