The Delaware County Symphony has launched its Golden Anniversary Season with the first of six virtual  Concerts on Demand, “European Flavors,” available on the orchestra’s YouTube Channel and/or Facebook Page.

This first concert, directed by chamber music director Jennifer Nicole Campbell, featured selections by  Bach, Brahms, Handel, Faure, Granados and Schubert.

Delaware County Symphony musicians Michael Berton (cello), Jeremy Desiderio (violin), Elizabeth Kell (flute) and Merri Lee Newby (English horn) performed, accompanied by Campbell on piano.

“In these trying times, we are thankful to Neumann University for making it possible for us to gather in small groups to rehearse and record on stage in the Meagher Theater,” said board president Merri Lee Newby. “We are adjusting to the new protocols which include mask-wearing, physical distancing, and a health check prior to coming to campus.

“While we can’t meet as the full orchestra, we are excited to play together in small ensembles and to prepare solo and chamber repertoire,” she added.
