Immaculata Symphony Presents Spring Concert
The Immaculata Symphony will hold its annual Spring Concert on Saturday, April 11, 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. This is the final concert for the 2014-2015 season.
Joseph Gehring, musical director of the Immaculata Symphony, will conduct selections featuring Hector Berlioz’s “Hungarian March” from The Damnation of Faust, Op.24; Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto, Op. 14; Bright Sheng’s Black Swan (after Brahms’ Intermezzo Op. 118 No. 2); and Modest Mussorgsky’s (arranged: Maurice Ravel) Pictures at an Exhibition. Adding a unique twist, Immaculata art students created original works inspired by Mussorgsky’s music.
The concert also features the talented young violinist Michelle Connor as she performs the Violin Concerto, Op. 14 by West Chester native Samuel Barber.
Cost for the concert is $15 for all adults; $12 for senior citizens; and free for children under the age of 12. More information and tickets are available by calling 610-647-4400, ext. 3473.
