Dale Kempter's Celebration Orchestra


Thank you to everyone who signed up. The orchestra is (very!) full. If you need to download the music again or need to contact us about the orchestra, please write to

We invite you to join us for a celebration of Dale Kempter's life on Saturday, December 15th at 10:00 am at the Albuquerque Academy's Simms Center for the Performing Arts.

All string players who would like to perform in a “Celebration Orchestra” are warmly invited to play for Mr. Kempter one last time.

Selections, conducted by David Felberg:
Adagio for Strings by Barber
Vocalise by Rachmaninov
Nimrod by Elgar

Arrive at 8:00 for an 8:30 rehearsal on the morning of December 15th. Time is limited! Have your part rehearsed, and do not be late!

There is no dress code. Wear what you think is appropriate.

Chairs and stands are being provided by the Albuquerque Academy.

Violinists should sign up for first or second parts based on your experience and comfort.

Please do not distribute the music to your friends directly. We ask that everybody sign up here so that we know how many musicians will be on stage. And please use these parts, as they have the bowings done by Lenny Felberg for Dale.
