Fremont Flute Ensemble to perform classical concert
Submitted By Alicia Unis
For the Summer Concert 2008, the Fremont Flute Ensemble will perform French composer Camille Saint-Saens' famous work, "The Carnival of Animals."
Consisting of fourteen short pieces, each piece embodies a zoological motif, painting a delightful musical portrait of a lion, chickens, turtles, an elephant, kangaroos and the immensely popular swan. Originally written for orchestra and piano, this work has been arranged for flute ensemble with narration.
The program will also include "Concerto in G" for two flutes by D. Cimarosa and the well-known "Canon in D" by Johann Pachebel.
The Fremont Flute Ensemble was established in October 2004 under its music director, Mr. Shao Jiang Huang, the former principal flutist of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. In comparison with other flute ensembles in the United States, this young ensemble has made its name on the local scene and in the Bay Area within a short period of time.
In Spring 2007, the Fremont Flute Ensemble gave a premier performance of the "Romeo and Juliet Ballet Suite" No. 2 by Sergei Prokofiev. It was the first flute ensemble collaboration with strings, percussion, and narration. The performance was well received and the audience was delighted with the new arrangement of such a famous Shakespearean drama.
Our goal is to introduce famous classical works to the audience, especially to the young children.
This concert will be a nice weekend treat for both parents and children, so come and enjoy this enlightening performance.
