Orquestra Clássica do Sul in Silves for Autumn concert

Silves’s “House of Luso-Arab and Mediterranean Culture” hosts the OCS for their Autumn Concert on November 19.

The Orquestra Clássica do Sul (OCS) is playing its “Autumn Concert – Slavic Paintings” at Silve’s Casa da Cultura Luso-Árabe e Mediterrânica (House of Luso-Arab and Mediterranean Culture) on November 19, at 18h00. Organised by the Municipality of Silves in partnership with the OCS, the event is free of charge.

“In this autumn concert, in which the days are shorter, we invite you to listen to music from the largest country in the world, where, at this time, the first snowflakes arrive, Russia,” says the OCS on its website. “In contrast to the approaching cold, A. Glazunov gives us the comfort of the warmth of his music – bright, lively and festive. With M. Mussorgsky, we will visit an exhibition of paintings, not to see, but to hear. In the instrumental ensemble version arranged by J. Lickelmann, this is one of his most famous musical compositions, originally written for the piano.”
