04.10.14 |
The Lebanon Valley College Orchestra will perform its annual spring concert on Sunday, April 13 at 3 p.m. in Lutz Hall of the Blair Music Center. The performance is free and open to the public.

The orchestra will perform a number of diverse pieces in this year's spring concert. Of those included in the program, audience members will recognize Mozart's "Symphony No. 35 in D Major" and the PDQ Bach dramatic oratorio "Oedipus Tex." The LVC College Choir, under the direction of Dr. Michael Wojdylak, will join the orchestra. Featured soloists include Dylan Tobias '16 as Oedipus, Carrie McFeaters '14 as Billie Jo Casta, Kimberly Merkert '16 as Madame Peep, and Timothy Lupia '16 playing the part of the Narrator.

There are two special pieces in the program for this spring's concert. The first is the Pennsylvania premier of Jian-Jun He's "Festival Overture." This piece was a finalist in this year's College Orchestra Director's Association composition contest. He is a professor of music at the University of Jacksonville in Florida. The second piece is the world premiere of LVC professor emeritus of music Dr. Scott Eggert's "Overture to The Winter's Tale." A world-renowned composer, Eggert is signed to Vale Records, the College record label.

The orchestra is under the direction of Dr. Johannes Dietrich, Newton and Adelaide Burger Endowed Professor of Instrumental Music. Dietrich, a native of Bozeman, Montana, joined the LVC faculty in 1995. Along with directing the LVC Symphony Orchestra, he teaches conducting and string methods and applied violin and viola, and conducts chamber music ensembles. He began studying violin at age five, and the piano shortly thereafter. He performs solo violin recitals throughout the country and is an active ragtime pianist.

He has studied at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria, and at Montana State University. Dietrich has a master's in violin performance and a doctorate in violin performance and conducting from the College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati. He performs regularly as a solo violin and piano musician, and as part of the Majore Trio and Duo Terlano ensembles.

Lebanon Valley College offers numerous public performances by students, faculty, and guests of the College throughout the semester. For the list of recitals this spring, visit http://www.lvc.edu/music/student-recitals.aspx.
