The Earth in Context: Greenwich Village Orchestra
Let the Greenwich Village Orchestra and Music Director Barbara Yahr take you on a tour of the solar system as they perform Gustav Holst's The Planets. Tremble at the frightful war drums of Mars, flutter with winged Mercury and sink into the shimmering mystery of icy Neptune. The program also includes Copland's Quiet City, featuring trumpeter Phil Parsons and English hornist Jason Smoller. Mingle with the musicians at the reception afterwards.
Phil Parsons enjoys performing in various settings including orchestras, musical theater, and big bands. He has performed with orchestras including the Las Vegas Philharmonic, Lexington Philharmonic, and Symphony Orchestra Augusta and with New York City orchestras such as the Greenwich Village Orchestra, Chelsea Symphony, and the Park Avenue Chamber Symphony. In the jazz genre, he has performed with headliners such as Ben Vereen, Clint Holmes, Ronnie Rose, Jo Belle Yonely, Tony DeSare, and Ann Hampton Callaway. He holds a BM in classical music from the Oberlin Conservatory.
Jason Smoller maintains an active freelance performance career in New York City, where he plays regularly with the Handel Festival Orchestra, The Chelsea Symphony, the Greenwich Village Orchestra, Apotheosis Opera, and The Dream Unfinished. In 2017, he gave the New York Premiere of the English Horn Concerto by Peteris Vasks with the Chelsea Symphony. He has also appeared with orchestras around the United States and in China, France, and the Dominican Republic. He has performed alongside Joshua Bell, Philippe Entremont, and Itamar Zorman and under the batons of Kurt Masur, Lorin Maazel, Valery Gergiev, and Daniel Barenboim. He holds an MM degree in Orchestral Performance from the Manhattan School of Music.
