CEDAR RAPIDS -- A full house greeted the terrific Orchestra Iowa Chamber Players, performing in the Opus Concert Cafe on Friday evening. (1/11/13) The concert will be repeated Saturday night in the intimate venue next to the Paramount Theatre, and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. in the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts. The evening was adroitly programmed, presenting three of Europe's finest composers in chronological order: Jean-Marie LeClair, Luigi Boccherini and Felix Mendelssohn. In their music, we are sharing the music of the 18th and 19th centuries, from French, Italian and German composers. There is much to be appreciated in this program, with five string players and the balanced acoustics of this attractive venue. The details
