    Montgomery College Invites Families to Celebrate Mother’s Day with Mozart
    College Chorus and Symphony Orchestra Perform in Joint Concert, May 8

    The Montgomery College Chorus and Symphony Orchestra will present a concert, “Simply Mozart,” on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 8, at 7:30 p.m., at the Robert E Parilla Performing Arts Center on the Rockville Campus, 51 Mannakee Street, Rockville, Md.  This concert is free and open to the public.

    The concert repertoire includes Mozart’s “Serenade in G,” the first movement of “Horn Concerto No. 3,” the first movement of “Violin Concerto No. 4,” and “Vesperae Solennes de Confessore.”   Two student soloists from the Montgomery College Symphony Orchestra—Montgomery College student Kristin Hoven and Montgomery County high school student and recent South Korean immigrant Jutli Park—will be featured in the two concertos.  The concert will be led by Dr. Molly Donnelly, conductor of the Montgomery College Chorus, and Dr. Wen Kurkul, conductor of the Montgomery College Symphony Orchestra.

    The Montgomery College Symphony Orchestra brings together talented student musicians from Montgomery College and local high schools, college faculty, community members, and Washington, DC-area professional musicians for weekly rehearsals and performances.  With this unique mix of musical talent, student musicians learn more about their craft and receive hands-on mentoring.  Montgomery County Public Schools students involved in the Montgomery College Symphony Orchestra also earn Student Service Learning (SSL) hours for their performances to the community.    

    For more information, contact Dr. Wen Kurkul at 301-251-7550.  To request accommodations for a disability, please contact the Robert E. Parilla Performing Arts Center Box Office two weeks in advance.  The box office number is at 301-279-5301.
