The Luther College Chamber Orchestra will perform in concert Sunday, Nov. 8, at 4 p.m., in the Noble Recital Hall of Jenson-Noble Hall of Music.

The concert is open to the public with no charge for admission.

The orchestra will perform Symphony No. 82 in C major by J Haydn, “Alleluia and Fugue for string orchestra” by Allen Hovhannes and Serenade No. 12 in C minor by Mozart.

The Chamber Orchestra specializes in repertoire for small orchestra and mixed chamber ensembles ranging from the Baroque era to the 20th century.

Conducted by Daniel Baldwin, the Chamber Orchestra performs with the Luther College Opera Workshop and the annual “Christmas at Luther” concert, in addition to performing concerts twice a year.

Before joining the Luther faculty, Baldwin held conducting positions at Central Washington University, the Brevard (N.C.) Music Center and the Central Kentucky Youth Orchestras.

He received his formal training in string pedagogy as a teacher in the nationally acclaimed University of Texas String Project.

A 1991 conducting fellow of the Conductor’s Institute of the University of South Carolina and former cellist with the Brevard Music Center Orchestra, Baldwin is a recipient of the Central Washington University Parents Association Excellence in Teaching Award.
