Cellist Sarah Morris and other chamber strings musicians perform at a recent concert at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Greenwood.

GREENWOOD — Lander University’s chamber strings spring concert gets under way Friday, April 12 at 8 p.m. in the Josephine B. Abney Cultural Center Auditorium.

Included in the program are Austrian composer Wolfgang Mozart’s “Symphony No. 25,” English composer Gustav Holst’s “Brook Green Suite” and selections from German-born British composer George Handel’s “Water Music Suite,” as well as works by German composer Felix Mendelssohn and Russian composer Victor Ewald.

Faculty sponsor Amy Blackwood said that the Mozart symphony and the Holst suite will feature not only strings, but also woodwinds and brass, something that is new for chamber strings audiences.

One of the most unique things about a chamber strings performance, according to Blackwood, is that there is no conductor. “All pieces are treated as true chamber music, where the concertmaster will lead the ensemble, but will also be playing. Therefore, the members of the ensemble have to watch and listen to each other, and rely on their ability to be flexible and create, blend and balance across all sections. This can create challenges, but can also be a very satisfying experience for everyone involved,” she said.

The concert, which will feature not only Lander students and faculty but also Greenwood area musicians, is free and open to the public.
