Friends of faculty member and orchestra director Roger Zahab, many of them former students of his, converged on New York City from as far away as Seattle and Minneapolis to perform in two concerts titled Stroke and Strike at the historic St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Chelsea on Thursday, May 20 and Saturday May 22, 2004. The music for string, keyboard, and percussion instruments included New York City premieres of works by Pitt faculty members Eric Moe and Roger Zahab as well as by Pitt alumna Barbara White (PhD '97).
