T

his year’s Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra’s June concerts feature the full orchestra under the baton of Norman Nelson, playing Beethoven, Brahms and Dvorak, at 8 p.m., on Friday, June 24 at Edward Milne Community Theatre, in Sooke, and at 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 25, at Alix Goolden Hall in Victoria. The programme opens with Beethoven’s much-loved Leonora Overture Number 3, which he composed for his opera Fidelio. Beethoven composed three overtures, and Number 3 is con-

sidered the most dramatic – too dramatic to actually begin the opera, and often performed on its own. ur soloists for this concert are Ann ElliottGoldschmid and Pamela Highbaugh Aloni, both well known to Sooke and Victoria music lovers as leader/first violinist and cellist of the Lafayette String Quartet, which has been together for 25 years. Both musicians are on the music faculty at the University of Victoria. They will be playing the magnificent and challenging Brahms

O

Double Concerto (Opus 102). The final work on this programme is the Symphony Number 7 by Dvorak. This work is considered by many musicians to be the most intense and electrifying of his symphonies. It is inspired by the composer’s pride in and love of Czechoslovakia, his native land. e sure to mark these dates on your calendar, for an evening of great music!
