Immaculata Symphony Presents Fall Concert
The Immaculata Symphony will perform its Fall concert, "Beethoven´s Ninth" on Saturday, November 6, 2010, at 7:30 p.m. in the Alumnae Hall Theater on the campus of Immaculata University. The Immaculata Symphony is a university-community organization, with a long and outstanding tradition that stems to the university´s founding in 1920. Ovidiu Marinescu serves as music director and conductor and Gary Garletts is chorus master for the Symphony, which includes both students and community members.
The German tradition is represented in the dramatic overture by Schumann, the wonderful songs for baritone and orchestra by Mahler, and the monumental Symphony No. 9 by Beethoven. The Ode to Joy will lift our spirits as sung by the combined forces of over 150 singers. Joining the Symphony are the Brandywine Singers, the Chester County Choral Society, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Performing Arts.
Ovidiu Marinescu, one of the outstanding musicians in his native Romania, is known for his powerful interpretations of orchestral works by Russian composers. He was chosen to play at Carnegie Hall for the Romania president. His guest conducting includes appearances in Romania, Spain, and the Czech Republic. Currently he is also the director of the West Chester University Symphony and has been conductor of various regional orchestras.
