The St. Augustine Orchestra presents its winter concert Thursday

The St. Augustine Orchestra’s winter concert, under the direction of Maestro Scott Gregg, features well-known favorites by composers from Central and Eastern Europe.


The performance is at 8 p.m. Thursday at the Lightner Museum, 75 King St.

Just last year, Gregg was named music director of the St. Augustine Orchestra. Gregg studied conducting at Baltimore’s Peabody Conservatory of Music, where he earned a master’s degree and was awarded the Christopher Percy Prize in Conducting. Concurrently, he was appointed to the conducting staff of the Peabody Conservatory Symphony and Philharmonic Orchestras, as well as serving as an Associate Conductor of the Johns Hopkins Symphony Orchestra.

The orchestra will feature Scott Watkins, a piano soloist, during Thursday’s performance. Watkins studied at the University of Cincinnati, and holds a doctoral degree in piano performance from Florida State University.

Musical selections include Richard Wagner’s “Rienzi Overture,” Mozart’s “Marriage of Figaro Overture,” “Largo” from Anton Dvorak’s “New World Symphony” and “Allegro” from Mozart’s “Piano Concerto No. 12.” The program continues with “Manfred Overture” by Robert Schumann, “Andante” from Brahms’ “Symphony No. 3 in F Major,” “Rosamunde Overture” by Franz Schubert, “Les Preludes” by Franz Liszt, and, for the finale, selections from the musical “The Producers” by Mel Brooks.
