Orchestra members D’Rachael, flautist and Vicki Schilling, on horn, are joined by Toronto based violinist, Moshe Hammer for an evening of music under the stars. Two of these musicians are current members of the orchestra and one is traveling from Toronto, Canada to join the Orchestra.

A student of Jascha Heifetz, Hammer was a medal winner at the Concours Jacques Thibaud in Paris and has been the leader of Toronto based Chamber group, the Amadeus Ensemble. Hammer’s performances have thrilled audiences worldwide.
Also performing a solo in this program is PV’s popular flautist, D’ Rachael presenting a movement from Mozart Flute Concerto K 314. Vicki Shilling, a resident of Lo de Marcos, will be playing the final movement of Mozart’s ever popular horn concerto K 417
Under the direction of Nick Salmons, the non profit chamber orchestra’s March concert features an exciting program with more highlights including “Autumn Ramble,” an original composition by John Robertson, Ravel’s Spanish dance “Pavane pur une infant defunte,” and Beethoven’s Coriolanus Overture.
