Columbia Orchestra 40th Season Opener

with Sibelius and Chaplin

The Columbia Orchestra’s 40th season opens on Saturday, October 7, 2017 with travels to Czechoslovakia and Finland and a world premiere to accompany the screening of Charlie Chaplin's The Immigrant. The orchestra will take the audience on an imaginary boat ride down the most famous Czech river with its performance of Smetana's symphonic poem The Moldau. Next the orchestra welcomes back composer Andrew Earle Simpson for the world premiere of his score to accompany Charlie Chaplin's hilarious 1917 silent film, The Immigrant, commissioned in celebration of the orchestra's 40th anniversary. Finally, Sibelius' masterwork Symphony No. 2, depicting the joys and struggles of Finland's people, closes the program. Bill Scanlan Murphy, music department faculty member at Howard Community College, will offer a free lecture at 6:30pm.
