LCCO and Music Director Vincent Povázsay are pleased to present two performances of "Discoveries: Treat & Treasure" on Saturday, March 9 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, March 10 at 3:00 pm at the Harper Center at First Presbyterian Church in Sanford.


The "Discoveries" concerts feature Robert Schumann's Cello Concerto in A Minor, a complex and emotional piece consisting of three movements, each representing a different aspect of musical expression. It is regarded as one of the most beautiful concertos ever written for the instrument.


Joining LCCO to perform this challenging piece is guest cellist Erin Murphy Snedecor from Brentwood, Md. Snedecor specializes in contemporary chamber music, improvisation, songwriting, and collaborative art. She is cellist and Co-Director of the ensembles Balance Campaign and earspace, a member of the indie rock band Pompeii Graffiti and 2023

Strathmore Artist-in-Residence.


Guest musician Erin Murphy Snedecor.

A discovery new to the audience and musicians alike is the inventive soundscape of Every Night A Dream Visits Us, an original composition by composer, theorist, and pianist Richard Drehoff Jr. Drehoff is an adjunct faculty member at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, the 2022-23 Composer-in-Residence with the Durham Symphony Orchestra and a Co-Director of earspace.


More familiar will be selections from the popular opera Carmen by French composer Georges Bizet with its brilliant melodies and dramatic story of love, obsession and jealousy.


LCCO concerts are FREE and open to the public. Door prizes by Big Bloomers Flower Farm.
