Virtual 'Seasons' concert raises money for food pantries

A year ago, Kyle Davis, music director at Brewster’s Our Lady of the Cape church, held the first “Change of Seasons” fundraising concert as a benefit for food banks across the Cape. 

Many of the same musicians as last year will be involved, including Davis, soprano and flutist Joan Kirchner, harpist Mairead Doherty and violinist Dan Flonta

Dan Flonta in the Cape Cod Times

Bach brings out the best in all of us. At least musicians feel that way, and the Falmouth Chamber Players Orchestra worked hard Sunday afternoon to show everyone why that’s true.

Bach’s Double Concerto (BWV 1060R) for oboe and violin is one of those retrofitted works: The only existing score is one the composer re-wrote for two harpsichords, but the range of that composition clearly indicates that he originally intended it for the two other instruments.

It’s a beautiful work, and the ensemble came alive. The soloists were Dan Flonta on violin and Hayn on oboe, and the orchestral support for the duo was enthusiastic.

The program includes compositions by Bach, Beethoven, Schubert and Shostakovich, as well as by the Romanian composer Ciprian Porumbescu and the Afro-American composer William Grant Still.

Dan Flonta in Notes on the Arts


“It is always a pleasure to perform works composed by Bach, especially one of the Double Concertos,” said Flonta. “The work is written with unparalleled musicality and precision. The dialogue between the violin, oboe and orchestra is astounding, and it underscores the beautiful effect created by blending the two instruments.”
