FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Oct. 27, 2010 - On Sunday, December 5, 2010 at 4:00 pm, Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts’ Great Artists in the Music Room series celebrates the holidays with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s in the Rosen House Music Room. One of America’s foremost chamber orchestras, the Orchestra of St. Luke’s returns to its birthplace to bring Caramoor’s Moz(art) series to a conclusion in this joyful afternoon concert. The all-Mozart program provides an alternative to traditional holiday classical fare with the master’s larger ensemble works for winds: the Divertimentos Nos. 12 and 14 for oboes, horns and bassoons; and the Gran Partita, widely regarded as his most unparalleled piece of the genre.

Great Artists in the Music Room – Moz(art)
Moz(art) is a three-part fall series exploring Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s more intimate and collaborative music through a beautiful selection of chamber and vocal works. The most enduringly loved composer of the Classical era, Mozart created pinnacles of the repertoire in every genre that he touched. His genius, his vision, and his prolific body of work have had a profound influence on subsequent Western art music. Featured artists are The Kuss Quartet, Caramoor Virtuosi, and The Orchestra of St. Luke’s.

About the Orchestra of St. Luke’s
Now entering its 36th year, Or¬chestra of St. Luke’s is a unique musical organization with a commitment to engaging audiences throughout New York City and beyond. Known as America’s foremost and most versatile chamber orchestra, St. Luke’s currently performs approximately 75 orchestral, chamber, and educational concerts each year. St. Luke’s performs an annual Orchestra series presented by Carnegie Hall and presents its Chamber Music Series at three distinguished venues in and around New York: The Morgan Library & Museum, Brooklyn Museum, and Dia:Beacon.

In addition to its own series, the Orchestra performs regularly with the world’s great artists on the world’s greatest stages, including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center and engages each year in a number of artistic collaborations that include dance, opera, and special events with such artists as Renée Fleming, Yo-Yo Ma, Jessye Norman, Anna Netrebko, Mark Morris Dance Group, Peter Gabriel, Sting, Elton John, and many more. Committed to the community, St. Luke’s also produces free concerts in each of the five boroughs, and over the last 34 years its Arts Education program has served more than one million children through a combination of free performances and school partnerships.
