BYU Chamber Orchestra plans 20th century program March 31

After making its Carnegie Hall debut last year, Brigham Young University’s Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Kory Katseanes will perform a program of 20th century works Tuesday, March 31, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall, Harris Fine Arts Center.

Tickets are $11, or $8 with BYU or student ID, and can be purchased online at www.byuarts.com, by phone at (801) 422-4322 or in person at the Harris Fine Arts Center Ticket Office.

The performance will include "The Lark Ascending" by Ralph Vaughan Williams featuring orchestra member Robert Landes, violin; the Divertissement by Jacques Ibert; and the Symphony no. 1, Op. 25, “Classical Symphony,” by Sergey Prokofiev.

After a whirlwind tour of the East Coast last spring that included 10 concerts, six firesides and five school programs, the Chamber Orchestra finished off the trip on a high note: playing to a full house at New York's famed Carnegie Hall on June 4.

Thousands of New York area members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and representatives from 20 countries, including five ambassadors, joined together for the Chamber Orchestra's concert, the first performance of any BYU orchestra at the historic venue.
