Oakland Civic Orchestra: Mendelssohn's 5th Symphony (the "Reformation")

This is, hands down, one of my favorite symphonies and I have played it before with the Oakland Civic Orchestra (which makes the bittersweetness of this performance a bit less bitter and a little sweeter for me). This is only the first movement but I will add videos of further movements as I receive them. Enjoy this amateur community orchestra! We have always played good repertoire without abbreviations or adaptations, and (with the grace of God I am sure) always managed to "come through" and make music with Marty Stoddard's leadership.
