Media advance Bangor Symphony Orchestra concert featuring Silver as soloist

The Bangor Daily News and Ellsworth American reported Noreen Silver, instructor of cello and chamber music at the University of Maine, will perform as a soloist during the Bangor Symphony Orchestra’s Jan. 22 concert at the Collins Center for the Arts. Silver’s performance of F.J. Haydn’s Cello Concerto No. 1 in C major with the orchestra is the centerpiece of the program that also will feature music by Bach and Handel, according to the Ellsworth American. “It’s stylistically demanding. The articulation and phrasing you must have leaves you very exposed,” Silver told the BDN of the solo piece. “There’s no hiding in Haydn.”
