The Mercyhurst University Symphony Orchestra has a performance this Friday, Nov. 13, at 8: p.m. in the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center.
This will be the last performance as a symphony orchestra before the Music Department merges this ensemble into the Chamber Orchestra.
The performance theme is “Dance” because all of the pieces that will be performed are specific styles of dances that range from a dark tango, fitting for Friday the 13th, to a waltz to the renaissance.
Get ready to feel the need to dance with the instruments.
The pieces are strings only and not only will our very own Mercyhurst students be performing, but there will also be a number of professional musicians from the surrounding area to play alongside the student musicians.
The conductor of this performance is R. Scott Tomlison, Ph.D, who is an Associate Professor of Music and Coordinator of Music Education here at Mercyhurst.
Admission for this performance is $2 for Mercyhurst students and faculty, as well as for children ages 10 and under and $5 for general admission.
Tickets will be available at the door and at the box office.
This performance is not one to miss and will be a perfect fit for a Friday evening outing for yourself and families.
