The Northeast Connecticut Community Orchestra will present a concert titled “From Bach to Blue Tango” at the Southbury Public Library on Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 7:00pm in the library’s Kingsley Room. Based in Woodstock in Connecticut’s “Quiet Corner”, the Northeast Connecticut Community Orchestra was founded in 2012 by music teacher Yaroslav Tereshchenko, then of Mansfield, CT. Since then, the string orchestra has played one spring and one winter concert each year, performing music written by composers ranging from Vivaldi and Mozart to Scott Joplin and the Beatles. After the 2016 Christmas concert, Tereshchenko joined the Omaha (Nebraska) Conservatory faculty. Dylan Lomangino of Mansfield, CT became the orchestra’s conductor and music director. Along with playing viola and teaching music in Connecticut schools, he now considers conducting to be his calling. Comprised of 20 musicians performing on violin, viola, cello and double bass, the Windham County-based ensemble will bring approximately 10 members to the Southbury performance.
The Northeast Connecticut Community Orchestra is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. The concert in Southbury will be their first performance in Western Connecticut. This concert is made possible by the Friends of the Southbury Public Library and the Leroy Anderson Foundation. Light refreshments will be provided..
Like all Southbury Public Library programs, this presentation is free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency. Registration is required. Please call 203-262-0626 ext. 130 to register or visit the Reference Desk.
