The Holy Trinity of Classical Music: Greenspring Valley Orchestra Presents “The Three B’s” December 7 at Stevenson University

November 14, 2014 7 AM

The Greenspring Valley Orchestra will pay tribute to the “Holy Trinity” of German classical musical—Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Johannes Brahms—when it presents “The Three B’s,” Sunday, Dec. 7, at 4 p.m. The concert will be held in Stevenson’s Inscape Theatre, located on the University’s Greenspring Campus, 1525 Greenspring Valley Road, Stevenson, MD 21153.

Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for students and seniors. Call 443-334-2433 for tickets.

“The pieces being played are all considered among the great masterpieces of Western music and are a true test for any orchestra,” said Robert Suggs, D.M.A., Professor of Music at Stevenson and Director of the Greenspring Valley Orchestra. “For a college or a community orchestra to present a program like this represents a huge task. The members have been working extra hard to rise to the challenge of playing such great music.”

The program will feature Bach’s famous organ piece, “Toccata and Fugue in D minor” (made popular by its use in Disney’s animated movie Fantasia), an overture from Beethoven’s only opera, and one of the most beautiful and powerful symphonies ever written, Brahms’ Symphony #2.

“All in all, it’s a classical music lover’s dream concert,” Suggs said.
