ACCLAIMED CONDUCTOR FREDERICK FENNELL TO APPEAR IN CONCERT TONIGHT

Internationally acclaimed conductor Frederick Fennell will conduct the Virginia Chamber Players at 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12, in Chandler Recital Hall of the Diehn Fine and Performing Arts Center

The concert is free and open to the public, but seating is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.

Fennell is widely regarded as the leader of the wind ensemble movement in the United States and is one of America's most recorded living American classical conductors. While maintaining obvious devotion to the band and its music, he has pursued such wide-ranging activities as conductor of orchestra, opera and popular repertoire, and has made guest-conducting appearances with symphony orchestras and bands all over the world.

His recordings include more than 30 releases on Mercury Living Presence, followed by the Telarc series in Cleveland and 31 releases with the Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra. A third series with the Dallas Wind Symphony for Reference Recordings includes an Indie award-winner, "Best Classical Album, 1993" for "Trittico."

This series is made possible by a grant from the F. Ludwig Diehn Music Fund of the Norfolk Foundation. For more information call 683-3020.
