The concert was also NCO’s first performance via livestreaming.  “We were pleased to provide livestreaming as an option for our patrons who were not comfortable coming to a live performance. NCO will continue to bring the livestream option to its patrons for the remaining two concerts of the season,” said NCO President, Barbara Lounsbury.

Moorings Presbyterian Church features ample seating and ushers will assist patrons to the available seats.  Audience size will be limited to 200. The musicians will wear masks and concerts will be one hour in duration to limit restroom use and lobby gatherings.

Naples Community Orchestra’s 2021 performance schedule will conclude on Saturday April 24. American violinist Stella Chen will return to Naples to perform works of Bach and R. Strauss. Milana Strezeva joins Ms. Chen on harpsichord and piano for the R. Strauss Violin Sonata in E-flat Major and the Bach Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor respectively. Both Max Rabinovitsj, violin, and Ms. Strezeva, harpsichord, join Ms. Chen for the Bach Concerto for Two Violins in D minor, “the Double.” Chen is the recipient of a 2020 Avery Fisher Career Grant, the 2020 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award and the first place prize in the prestigious International Queen Elisabeth Competition in Belgium 2019. She plays the “Huggins” 1708 Stradivarius violin, generously on loan from the Nippon Music Foundation.
