The concert began with the appearance of Director, Sean Phelan.  Surprises were in store for the audience.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream-Overture & Incidental Music

The first selection was Felix Mendelssohn’s music from the play,  A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  The fairies in the woods were very busy and happy as the violins made known.  For those of us who have never been privy to a performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, perhaps we would have been more engaged if the first selection included The Wedding March, one of Mendelssohn’s most famous melodies.
