VERO BEACH — A chamber ensemble from the Space Coast Symphony will perform works by Chopin and Schubert on Sunday, May 15 at 3 p.m. at the Waxlax Center for the Performing Arts. Pianist Rochelle Sallee joins Aaron Collins and the Space Coast Chamber Orchestra in a performance of Frederic Chopin’s dazzling Piano Concerto No. 1. The composer’s secret love for Konstancia, a fellow student at the conservatory, inspired this rhapsodic, soaring work.
The second half of the concert features Franz Schubert’s hauntingly beautiful and intense Symphony No. 4 ‘Tragic’, the young composer’s first minor-key work, written in 1816.
“Shelley is a wonderful musician and a true virtuoso,” said Conductor Aaron Collins of Sallee. “The audience will be riveted by her stylish and emotional rendition of Chopin’s piano concerto, written when the composer was in love.”
Tickets are $15. Children 18 and under are admitted free.
Tickets are available at the door, or in advance at www.SpaceCoastSymphony.org, at beachside and mainland branches of Marine Bank & Trust, at Madison Avenue Consignments, or by calling (321) 536-8580.
