Oakland Civic Orchestra Mendelssohn Symphony 5, mvts 2, 3 and 4

One of my favorite movements of any Symphony!!

I love the fugue in the third movement, but I also love the Lutheran hymns, etc, throughout. After all there's a reason it is called "Reformation"! Remember these are all amateur players with day jobs. Marty (conductor) teaches High School Music and through her work with us over the last @twenty-three years we have grown into a fairly competent orchestra!! What is very cool is how much each player loves what they are doing. The ability to make music is truly a grace of God.
