“Sounds of Hope” at Wolf Trap!

Cover artwork by senior cellist Misha Somogyi

Langley Orchestra reveled in a picture-perfect day on Saturday, with comfortable temperatures, bright skies, and few cicadas for its first in-person group performance in 14 months. Special thanks to the Wolf Trap Foundation for partnering with us and hosting us Saturday May 15th on the Meadow Pavilion stage for a socially-distanced performance.

Our “Sounds of Hope” selections were video recorded by Bandman Music and will be made available to our orchestra families soon. In the meantime, our concert program celebrating Langley Orchestra’s Class of 2021 can be downloaded below.

Our planned repertoire ended with the Class of 2021 performing “I Will Survive,” a very fitting piece after the turmoil of the past 14 months… until the “Tribute to Doc” piece surprised Doc. This tribute piece was composed by senior cellists Misha Somogyi and Keon Parastaran, guest conducted by Adam Willett, and performed by members of the Class of 2021. The score was presented to Doc in a personalized folder which can be viewed below.

Doc also specially recognized three seniors for their amazing above-and-beyond efforts:
