HUNTER — Catskill Mountain Foundation presents the Windham Festival Chamber Orchestra performing works by Debussy, Strauss and Mahler 8 p.m. Nov. 27 at the Orpheum Film & Performing Arts Center, 6050 Main St., Tannersville. Robert Manno conducts the orchestra, with Elizabeth Mann on flute and guest soprano Nancy Allen Lundy. Tickets are $25 and general admission only. Audience seating is very limited, and the performance will sell out quickly. Tickets are only available by advance purchase at catskillmtn.org or by calling 518-263-2063.

The program includes three orchestral works reduced to chamber music in arrangements inspired by composer Arnold Schoenberg. The program will include Claude Debussy’s Prelude a l’apres-midi d’un faune, the Kaiser-Walzer by Johann Strauss II, and the Symphony -4 in G Major by Gustav Mahler.

Since 2000, the Windham Festival Chamber Orchestra under the direction of composer/conductor Robert Manno has earned accolades and national attention through the many broadcasts of its live performances from the Windham Chamber Music Festival and Catskill Mountain Foundation over American Public Media’s “Performance Today.” The orchestra is comprised of the finest musicians from the New York area and includes current and former members of the MET Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, NYC Opera Orchestra, NYC Ballet Orchestra, Hudson Valley Philharmonic, Albany Symphony Orchestra, Orpheus and many other New York area ensembles.
