Overland Park Orchestra - "Die Meistersinger" & "Beethoven's 7th"

Sunday, October 29th - 3:00pm
Their public concerts are for audiences of all ages and admission is free!
Join us for a momentous start to our symphonic series this season. The concert will kick off with the Overture to Wagner's opera Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg. Most of Wagner's operas delve in the mystical realm of dragons and magic swords, but Die Meistersinger bucks many of Wagner traditional opera elements. The opera revolves around the many craftsmen and merchants of Nurnberg, who also happen to be gifted singers. It is also one of Wagner's only comedic operas and is a very underrated work. The overture to the opera though has always been a symphonic favorite for good reason. The piece is filled with flowing lyricisim and a light-heartened tone echoing the joyous nature of the singing craftsmen of Nurnberg.
The concert will feature one of the true masterpieces of classical repertoire, Beethoven's Symphony No. 7.  The piece is full of life and vigor and is a true joy to experience. Beethoven's masterwork is lively throughout and features vivacious melodies that are enthralling. The jubliant nature and cheerful emotion evoked throughout the symphony makes the work a delightful journey for musicians and audiences alike. This is truly an ideal work for our celebratory 50th season. We hope you'll join us!

Concert Program to Include:
Overture to Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg (1868)   –––––   Richard Wagner

College Choirs

Volunteers would assist with all aspects of planning and preparation for the arrival of a college music ensemble, typically once-twice a year.

Special Events

Liturgical Dancing

Dancing is another form of worship just like singing or playing an instrument. Through the use of rhythmical movements accompanied by sacred music, liturgical dancers add another level to the worship experience. Open to children through adults.

Visual Arts

Visual arts allow us to present the Gospel in a new way, and insights can often be gained by viewing familiar scriptures through a visual presentation.

Dramatic Arts

Dramas, dramatic monologues and skits allow us to present the Gospel in a different way, particularly during Advent and Lent midweek services. Insights can often be gained by viewing familiar scriptures through the prism of dramatic presentation.
