Youth Symphony Concert
The Immaculata Symphony will hold its annual Youth Concert, Heroes and Villains, on Sunday, February 12, at 3:00 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.
Conducted by Joseph Gehring, children will delight as the Immaculata Symphony performs some of the most exciting music written to accompany our favorite heroes and villains including music from The Incredibles, Harry Potter, Star Wars and Super Man. The audience will learn about the instruments of the orchestra, how a composer writes music, and even get a chance to conduct the orchestra in this educational and entertaining Youth Concert. After the performance, children are invited on stage to meet the musicians and to see and hear the instruments up close.
