Daisy Jopling is thrilled and honored to be collaborating with the fantastic teachers of the Peekskill and Hendrick Hudson Middle and High School choirs, Mr. Mitchell Guido, Mr. Kevin Larsen, Mrs. Kimberly Dunkin and Mrs. Erica Denler and their wonderful choir students – come support them as they perform with the Daisy Jopling Band and Orchestra 914 in “Irradiance” at the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater in Peekskill, NY 5/22/22 at 3 PM ET. This event is presented by The Daisy Jopling Music Mentorship Foundation (DJMMF).
Internationally acclaimed, classical/rock star violinist Daisy Jopling is excited to collaborate with Orchestra 914 and Hudson Valley students on a full orchestra mentorship show at the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater called “Irradiance”. This eclectic, rock/classical fusion will feature local youth choirs singing music composed by Daisy inspired by the sacred tones of the Great Pyramids of Egypt, as well as classic rock songs and hits from the Daisy Jopling Band orchestrated by Dean Fransen. The show will feature a beautiful lighting design by Ro-z Edelston, and will be conducted by Dean Fransen and Kathleen Feldman.
Formed in 1958, Orchestra 914 expands the classical music experience for diverse audiences in the Hudson Valley through creative, educational, and community programming with the highest level of artistic integrity.
