  • Violinist Krista Bennion Feeney will be among the musicians appearing Sunday, Aug. 31, in concert at Pacem in Terris in a program celebrating the social music of eighteenth and nineteenth century Vienna.



WARWICK — On Sunday, Aug. 31, the Serenade Orchestra returns to Pacem in Terris performing Vienna’s social music of the 18th and 19th centuries.

According to the press release announcing the program, Pacem in Terris Assistant Frances Jennick wrote:

“This configuration of instruments was the most popular small orchestra for playing the social music of eighteenth and nineteenth century Vienna. It specializes in the divertimenti, cassations, marches, waltzes and, of course, serenades that were such an integral part of the vibrant music making from Mozart’s day and beyond. "

Members of the Serenade Orchestra use the same historical instruments (gut strings) that were used to play this music in old Vienna: Natural horns will be played by R.J. Kelley and Alexandra Cook blending with the soaring violins of Krista Bennion Feeney and Keats Dieffenbach, Jessica Troy, viola, and John Feeney, bass.

Selections
The program includes:

Mozart's rarely heard masterpiece the Divertimento K. 287 "Lodron Night Music" for two violins, viola, bass and two horns.

Haydn String Quartet Op. 9 No. 4 for two violins, viola and bass (this may be the first time this piece has been heard in this country with the instrumentation Haydn wrote it for).

Strauss’ the Beautiful Blue Danube Waltz and the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in e minor Op. 64, in a special tailor-made-for the Serenade Orchestra arrangement by John Feeney.

Essential information

The program begins at 5 p.m., rain or shine.

Pacem in Terris is a not-for-profit organization located at 96 Covered Bridge Road in Warwick.

No reservations possible. Tickets on sale at 4 p.m. Suggested donation: $15.
