Vashon Maury Chamber Orchestra (VMCO) will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, at Vashon Center for the Arts (VCA) — a joyous return to the stage for the group after long pandemic delays in performing.
The performance will feature guest soloists, Sandon Lohr and Joseph Williams.
Lohr, the assistant principal on horn with Tacoma Symphony, will solo on VMCO’s performance of Haydn’s Horn Concerto No. 1.
Lohr studied horn performance at Carnegie Mellon University and the New England Conservatory and has played the French horn in various regional groups including the Boise Philharmonic and the Spokane Symphony.
A classical pianist and educator from Tacoma, Williams has performed in venues worldwide, from The John F. Kennedy Center to Dubai’s Al Jalila Cultural Center for Children. An advocate for accessible music education, he is also the founder and director of the non-profit Tukwila Kids Make Music and an instructor at Key to Change.
During the concert, in addition to VMCO’s performed pieces, a small ensemble will perform William Grant’s Still Summerland.
