CLASSICAL | Cordancia Chamber Orchestra 

Cordanica will give a French-inspired concert this weekend with a program combining a roster of French composers with a gently nostalgic Brit and a raucous American. Cordanica will be conducted by Rachel Lauber. The truly French items include a delicately witty serenade by Jean Francaix, and "The Wedding on the Eiffel Tower," a surrealist extravaganza by Jean Cocteau. Cocteau's scenario defies a brief retelling, but the music still makes entertaining listening. Cordancia will offer a similarly wacky Roaring 20's relic in a "Jazz Symphony" by the American composer George Antheil, and a complete contrast to all of the above with three lovely short pieces by Frederick Delius. (Antheil and Delius both lived in France, hence their inclusion here.)

This program also features performances by two winners of Cordancia's Concerto Competition for Young Performers: flutist Adam Sadberry, and violinist Alexandria Ott. The full program will be performed in two separate venues.

Cordancia Chamber Orchestra performs Friday, April 22, at 7 p.m. at Asbury First United Methodist Church, 1050 East Avenue; and again Sunday, April 24, at 3 p.m. in Linehan Chapel, Nazareth College, 4245 East Avenue. $9-$12. cordancia.org.
