Northeast CT Community Orchestra Concert “British Invasion: Benjamin Britten to The Beatles”

June 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The Northeast Connecticut Community Orchestra will celebrate the Brits for a change with its 8thAnnual Spring Concert on Friday, June 7 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, June 9 at 2 p.m. at Clark Chapel on the Pomfret School campus, in Pomfret CT. The concerts are free and open to the public. Donations are gratefully received.

The Concert “British Invasion: Benjamin Britten to The Beatles” will feature light classical English music composed in the 20thcentury by Ralph Vaughan Williams, William Walton, John Rutter and Benjamin Britten as well as string orchestra arrangements of popular songs by Led Zeppelin, Elton John, The Beatles, Queen and The Rolling Stones.

The wonderful acoustics of Clark Chapel in Pomfret will enhance the wide variety of music which ranges from Vaughan Williams’ serene and beautiful “Rhosymedre,” heard most recently at the Royal Wedding, to the “We Will Rock You” anthem made world famous by Queen.

The Northeast Connecticut Community Orchestra was founded in 2012 by violinist Yaroslav Tereshchenko who invited Dylan Lomangino to be assistant conductor in 2014. Since Tereshchenko’s move to the Omaha Conservatory in Nebraska, Lomangino has been conductor and music director.

The 20-member string orchestra has performed free Spring and Christmas concerts each year since its founding. It is a non-audition-based group. Anyone who plays violin, viola, cello or string bass is welcome to join. Rehearsals are held weekly on Friday evening in Ashford.
