Immaculata Symphony Presents Fall Concert
Under the direction of Musical Director Joseph Gehring, the Immaculata Symphony opens its 2014-2015 season with its annual fall concert on Saturday, November 8, at 7:30 p.m. in Alumnae Hall on the campus of Immaculata University. The Immaculata Symphony is a university-community organization, with a long and outstanding tradition that goes back to the university’s founding in 1920.
Former Immaculata Symphony director, Ovidiu Marinescu, returns to perform the dramatic Cello Concerto in D minor by French composer Edouard Lalo. Also, the Symphony performs the magnificent Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68 by Johannes Brahms, a work that took the composer nearly 21 years to complete. The concert opens with an overture by Gioachino Rossini for his opera Il Viaggio a Reims.
Gehring, music director and conductor for the Immaculata Symphony, Chester County Pops Orchestra, West Chester Band, and the Immaculata University Concert Band, is an active conductor, pianist, and educator. He is a frequent guest conductor of various honor/festival bands and orchestras throughout Pennsylvania and Delaware. He recently earned a Master of Music Performance degree in orchestral conducting.
