Chamber Orchestra to present fall concert Nov. 9

Wichita, Kan. – The Friends University Chamber Orchestra will present its fall concert Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m. in Riney Fine Arts Center.

Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto #5 will be featured in the concert.

“This piece is one of the largest works for keyboard or harpsichord at the time it was written in 1719,” said Kay Buskirk, orchestra conductor. “Some even consider it the first keyboard concerto.”

Harpsichord soloist Dr. James Knight, as well as violinist Chelley Graves and flutist Amy Hoffman, will be performing in the concert as well.

“The orchestra is really enjoying working with these fine musicians,” Buskirk said.

The concert is free and open to the public. The performance will take place in Sebits Auditorium in Riney Fine Arts Center on the Friends University campus at 2100 W. University Ave., Wichita, Kan.
