Concert features Bernstein’s exciting Symphonic Dances from West Side Story and Brahms' beautiful Symphony No. 3 in F major. Our Jo Amish Young Artist Concerto Competition Winner, Benjamin Doane, will play the first movement of Elgar’s Cello Concerto.

Penfield Symphony Orchestra’s fourth concert of its 61st Season, “The Two Bs,” sponsored By Harris Beach PLLC, will take place on May 1, 2017, at 7:30PM.

 

The concert commences with Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story. Bernstein's works are always rhythmically challenging but eminently enjoyable. The suite highlights the main exciting and memorable themes from the stage show. Our Jo Amish Young Artist Concerto Competition Winner, Benjamin Doane, will then play the sublime first movement of Elgar’s Cello Concerto.  The concert concludes with Brahms’ dramatic yet beautiful Symphony No. 3 in F major.

 

The performance will be held at Penfield High School Auditorium, 25 High School Drive, Penfield, NY 14526. Tickets can be ordered online at  www.penfieldsymphony.org or reserved by phone at 585-872-0774. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for senior citizens and are available at all area Wegmans, at the Penfield Recreation Department (1985 Baird Road), at Canandaigua National Bank—Penfield Branch (1816 Penfield Road), and at the door on the night of the concert.  Students of any age with student ID may attend the concert free, so this is an ideal opportunity to bring the family along for an evening of classical entertainment.

The Penfield Symphony Orchestra, with approximately ninety musicians, has been performing in the Greater Rochester area for the last sixty years, and under the direction of Dr. David Harman for the last sixteen years, with the goal of providing “
live symphonic music close to home.”
