Lowell Chamber Orchestra to Perform for MCC’s “World of Music”

As part of Bedford TV’s annual awards ceremony, Middlesex Community College’s “A World of Music” concert series was awarded Best Musical Performance. Carmen Rodriguez-Peralta, MCC’s Chair of the Music Department and Director of the World of Music, received the award for her performance on the piano.

The Lowell Chamber Orchestra (LCO) will record a performance for Middlesex Community College’s Fall “World of Music” concert series. Due to the pandemic, concerts throughout the Fall semester have been recorded live and aired online. The LCO will perform “Hidden Landscapes” at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, November 20.

Recorded at the Christ Church United in Lowell, the concert will be conducted by Orlando Cela, an MCC faculty member. The performance will include pieces reminiscent of places – both real and imaginary. Works include those by Bongani Ndodana-Breen, Richard Strauss, Gustav Mahler, and Aaron Copland. Soprano Barbara Quintiliani will be featured in the performance.

The current series has also included performances by Carmen Rodriguez-Peralta, MCC’s Chair of Music, on the piano, “Lowell Threads” by members of the LCO and MCC faculty members, and Jerome Mouffe on the guitar.

The concert series will come to a close with a performance of an MCC Student Recital – recorded both at students’ homes and at the Richard and Nancy Donahue Family Academic Arts Center – and will air online at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, December 11.

Recordings of all the concerts in the series are available without charge free at www.middlesex.mass.edu/worldofmusic/.
