May 4 kicks off the four-part installment of the Hurleyville Performing Arts Centre's “Live at Home” series.
The Hurleyville Performing Arts Centre will be offering “live” performances and discussions for the entire month of May. These hour-long live streams will be held every Sunday starting at 4:00 p.m. on the HPAC’s Facebook page.
The live streams will feature performances from the Sullivan County Chamber Orchestra. The SCCO is composed of many talented musicians who have played all around the globe and is the resident, year-round chamber orchestra of Sullivan County.
The SCCO collaborates with composers and arrangers in order to create new songs and new arrangements of already existing music. The group does this in hopes of creating an innovative program for all generations. They provide music all year round for the community, free of charge.
The first live stream, on May 4, will feature performances such as “The Argentinian Sound” and “Four Seasons of Sullivan County.” Followed by the performances, there will be a discussion about practice techniques and how to properly prepare for a performance. The discussion will be hosted by the co-founder of the SCCO, Akiko Hosoi, and the artistic director, Andrew Trombley.
Trombley is a very distinguished bass player, having performed with many ensembles, including The New York Philharmonic, The Minnesota Orchestra and The Metropolitan Opera. He is also a professor of double bass at New York University Steinhardt School and is currently the Principal Bass of the New Haven Symphony Orchestra.
