NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.– Westminster College will welcome back The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in March with a concert featuring the Grammy-winning orchestra and conductor Manfred Honeck. The PSO will perform on the Will W. Orr stage at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 25.
Students can attend the concert for free. Tickets for the general public are available through Westminster’s Celebrity Series Office.
Honeck will conduct selections from Edvard Greig’s beguiling Peer Gynt—including “Morning Mood” and “In the Hall of the Mountain King”—and Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto featuring Lithuanian violinist Julian Rachlin. The orchestra will also perform Rachmaninoff’s Caprice bohémien.
Rachlin, who has been hailed as the “real thing” by The Los Angeles Times, has established himself as one of the most exciting and respected musicians of our time.
The symphony will perform in Westminster’s Will W. Orr Auditorium, a 1,700-seat concert hall, where Westminster’s various music ensembles and guest artists from the Celebrity Series regularly perform.
The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra at Westminster series is sponsored by Steelite International.
