Pro Arte continues the season in January with a program of music featuring American composers. We showcase Pro Arte principals Ann Bobo, flute, Nancy Dimock, oboe and English horn, and Dana Russian, trumpet in the music of Barber and Copland. In addition, we premiere a work commissioned from local composer Thomas Oboe Lee – a piece based on the Greek mythological maiden Daphne. We round out the concert with string works by David Diamond, Irving Fine, and Gershwin. Returning to Pro Arte’s podium is acclaimed local conductor Beatrice Affron.
