The sanctuary of La Cañada Presbyterian Church will resound with some of the world's most stirring and lyrical orchestral music this Sunday, April 29 at 4 p.m. when the church's chamber orchestra presents a free concert featuring the work of Mozart, Beethoven, Grieg, Copland and Gould.
The community is invited to hear the impressive work of an orchestra made up of 40 amateur, professional and semi-professional musicians drawn from the congregation and the local area. It is directed by church member Jack Lantz.
One of the highlights of the concert will be Mozart's Symphony No. 41, also known as the Jupiter symphony, and the last one Mozart wrote. "It's really the culmination of Mozart's compositions, and it's truly a great work," said Lantz, who has a degree in music composition from Yale University and conducts bands, orchestras and choruses as a hobby.
