Maine Pro Musica Orchestra will present its summer concert Wednesday, July 22, at 8 p.m. at the Rockport Opera House, 6 Central St. Tickets will go on sale Monday, June 22.

This year’s concert will open with Mozart’s Overture to “The Marriage of Figaro,” followed by the Sinfonia Concertante featuring soloists Kimberly Lehmann, viola; and Robert Lehmann, violin. The concert will end with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 — all in all, an evening of some of the finest classical repertoire ever composed.

The Maine Pro Musica musicians are professionals working across Maine and beyond. They teach and play in many orchestras and ensembles, traveling across the state to play with MPM throughout the year.

This past year, MPM Music Director Janna Hymes of Rockport was chosen out of hundreds of conductors to open the season of the Macon Symphony in Georgia. She also maintains her position as Music Director of the Williamsburg Symphony in Virginia. This fall, Hymes will be Artist in Residence at Colby College; and will conduct three concerts with the Colby Orchestra. In addition, she will be bringing the Williamsburg Symphony to perform at the prestigious Bermuda Festival.

Kimberly Lehmann is a member of the viola section of the Portland Symphony. Originally a violinist, she switched to the viola about 10 years ago. She has performed with the South Dakota Symphony, the Colorado Springs Symphony and the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as PORTopera, Boston Modern Orchestra Project, Portland Ballet and the Choral Arts Society. Kim is an avid chamber musician and lives with her husband, Robert, and their two sons in Scarborough.

Robert Lehmann is Professor of Music and Director of Strings and Orchestral Activities at the University of Southern Maine School of Music. In addition to his duties at USM, he is Music Director of the North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra and the White Mountain Bach Festival in New Hampshire; and conductor of the Portland Youth Symphony Orchestra. Prior to his appointment at USM, he was Music Director of the Mozart Society Orchestra at Harvard and on the conducting staff of the Greater Boston and the Empire State Youth Orchestras. He is first violinist of the Meliora Quartet and concertmaster of the PORTopera and Choral Art Society.
