Viola soloists at Giving Strings concert Aug. 8
Lori Lamattina and Karen Johnson. will be playing the viola at Giving Strings concert.
Karen Johnson and Lori LaMattina are the featured soloists in the 10th annual Giving Strings outdoor concert, which will be held on Saturday, Aug. 8 at Shafor Park in Oakwood. This concert of light classical music has become an Oakwood tradition, and is performed by area professional and amateur musicians who come together to make music, and raise awareness and funds for local children’s charities.
Karen and Lori are members of the Dayton Philharmonic viola section and will be performing the beautiful but not often heard double viola concerto by Telemann. Although the work is in four movements it is only twelve minutes in length. The first and third movements are slow and stately, the second is a lively gigue and the finale is also energetic with rhythmic, catchy themes.
Admission is free to the concert. Free will donations from this event will benefit the Transitional Housing chapter of St. Vincent de Paul, assisting homeless families in the Dayton area. For further information call 293-5753.
