Soprano for LPO Concert Ill, Revised Program will Continue Saturday


Adrienne Danrich
Adrienne Danrich will not perform with the Laredo Phil  



An illness has forced the cancellation of the appearance by Emmy award-winning soprano Adrienne Danrich, scheduled at Saturday’s Laredo Philharmonic Orchestra Concert at 7:30 p.m.  at the Texas A&M International University Recital Hall. The evening’s program has been revised, but the fourth concert in the Philharmonic’s “Sounds of Our Heritage” Season will go ahead as planned.

“This is most unfortunate and we send our best to Adrienne for a speedy recovery and look forward to a chance when she can rejoin us,” said Brendan Townsend, Music Director, “Our program was quickly revised with Dr. Colin Campbell, TAMIU Organist, stepping at the last minute to perform Handel’s Concerto No. 13 in F, which will surely amaze and inspire.”

Dr. Campbell has been University Organist since 2013. Since then, he has performed extensively, bringing more awareness about the versatility of the Sharkey Corrigan Organ. His most popular concerts have included an improvised live soundtrack to such silent film classics as “The Phantom of the Opera.”

Still included on the program are well-known works by Bach, Mozart and Dvorak. The extremely evocative pair of dances for Harp and Strings by Debussy will also be featured in the program.

“We start with just a few of us on stage to play the Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 where all nine instrumentalists are soloists,” said Brendan Townsend, Music Director, “More and more instrumentalists are added as the program unfolds, ultimately ending with the full string section to perform the melancholic and sweet Serenade for Strings by Antonin Dvorak,” he explained.

Students with a current ID card are admitted free.
