Weinshenker performs with orchestra

Lisa A. Weinshenker, of Ashby, Mass., performed with the Bates College Orchestra in a diverse program featuring African- American music and the work of Franz Schubert.

The program included a solo by Weinshenker, “Concerto for Oboe and Strings,” by Ralph Vaughn-Williams.

In honor of the 200th anniversary of the birth of the Austrian composer Franz Schubert, the orchestra will conclude with Symphony #8, “The Unfinished.”
