New Westchester Symphony Orchestra is excited to officially announce our inaugural Intergenerational Concert, taking place on Sunday, October 26, 2014.
NewWSO’s musicians already range in age from 15-86, so you might be wondering what makes the Fall Concert specifically “Intergenerational?” While we do have two high school students who are regular members of NewWSO, we are opening up this opportunity to play Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 to thirty (30) additional middle school, high school, and college students who might otherwise not be able to join NewWSO on a regular basis. With a minimal time commitment of four rehearsals in the fall and optional rehearsals in the summer, we hope that any student who has ever wanted to play Beethoven’s 5th with a full orchestra will apply.
No auditions or audition materials necessary, students will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis as long as there is space in their section.
The other exciting aspect of the Intergenerational Concert is that Westchester resident and harpsichord virtuoso Anthony Newman will headline the event. Mr. Newman will perform the Bach Concerto for Harpsichord in D Minor (BWV 1052) with NewWSO, as well as a solo work. What a great opportunity for Westchester residents to hear both a virtuosic performance as well as a community music performance in the same concert. The Intergenerational Concert will celebrate the diverse range of Westchester’s musicians, from professional to hobbyist.
