The University of Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra travels to New York City to perform a concert of evocative and wide-ranging works for string orchestra. Highlights include Pitt alumna Gilda Lyons' La Novia de Tola, Roger Zahab's night and starlight, Dvorak's beloved Serenade for strings, and John Cage's beautifully expansive late work, Twenty-three from 1988. The program takes place on Monday, May 20th, 8 p.m. at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Chelsea and is free to the public.
Pitt alumni are welcome to a pre-performance reception from 6-7:30 p.m. at Bocca di Bacco Chelsea. The cost is $10 per person and includes one drink and appetizers. Register for the reception here.
