Mukilteo Community Orchestra to perform Nov. 18

Nov 14, 2012

The Mukilteo Community Orchestra’s fall concert will feature dances of passion.

The concert will be at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18, at Rosehill Community Center in Mukilteo. It is free and open to the public.

The program features dances from two composers, Dvořák’s “Slavonic Dances” and a suite from Tchaikovsky’s ballet, “Swan Lake.” The performance will also premiere local composer Richard Vitzhum’s “Perchance to Dream.”

“We are excited to perform the romantic dance music of Dvořák and Tchaikovsky,” said Trevor Lutzenhiser, artistic director and conductor.

“I am also very pleased that we will feature the debut performance of ‘Perchance to Dream,’ which was written for the Mukilteo Community Orchestra by local musician and composer Richard Vitzhum.”

Vitzhum is a classically trained conductor, violinist, violist and music theorist. He got his start on Broadway, featuring national tours as solo violinist and conductor.

Since then, he has played violin for performances at the Paramount Theatre, and both viola and violin in many local symphony orchestras.

He regularly performs, arranges, composes and conducts for musical programs throughout the region.

The Rosehill Community Center is at 304 Lincoln Ave. in Mukilteo.

The Mukilteo Community Orchestra provides performance and educational opportunities for regional musicians to create integrative musical experiences for the community.
