A Free University Concert of the Shippensburg University Community Orchestra: Mozart, Beethoven & Bach

St. Paul’s Church’s Minister of Music & Sacred Arts, Professor Fred Dade,  in Concert Sunday, November 19th, 3pm

From the University Website: “The full orchestra accompanies our very talented faculty member Fred Dade on Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20, a virtuosic piece known for its breadth of emotion – sometimes dark, sometimes tempestuous and finally jubilant at the end – you may know it from the film, Amadeus.  Imagine, this piece premiered with Mozart himself not only playing, but conducting from the piano!”
