West Virginia University's Chamber players, a faculty ensemble conducted by Mitchell Arnold, will perform in Charleston at 7 p.m. Dec. 4 at Cavendish Hall, located at 207 52nd St., The free concert will be featuring the music of Igor Stravinsky, Benjamin Britten and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.

The program, performed with stunning virtuosity, consists of Igor Stravinsky's "Histoire du Soldat (The Soldier's Tale) Suite," Benjamin Britten's exuberantly youthful "Sinfonietta" for 10 players, and the vibrant "Capriccio Espagnol" by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, also in an arrangement for 10 players.

"It is a great pleasure to make music with such fine musicians as my colleagues from WVU," said Arnold, director of orchestral activities at WVU, where he also conducts the WVU Symphony Orchestra. 

"Our faculty performers bring great nuance, virtuosity, and feeling to all the wonderful twists and turns in this exciting program," he said. 

This concert marks the beginning of the ensemble's second season. Last year the WVU Chamber Players performed in both Pittsburgh and Morgantown. Later this season the ensemble will perform in Morgantown and Wheeling.

For information, call the Cavendish Hall office at 304-348-4830.
