Nineteenth Annual Chamber Arts Series
For twenty-five years the Chamber Orchestra of Versailles has enjoyed a world?wide reputation for exacting performances of the literature for small orchestra. In addition to extensive concerts in France, the Orchestra has made frequent tours to nearly every country in Europe, and is regularly invited to Germany, England, Scandinavia, and Spain. The ensemble has also concertized in Asia and America. As expected, the group's repertoire includes the works of the French Classical Masters, particularly those of the Versailles School, in addition to both traditional and contemporary music. This evening's performance is the first in Ann Arbor for the Orchestra and its conductor, Bernard Wahl.
