BYU Philharmonic in concert Nov. 22

The Brigham Young University Philharmonic Orchestra, directed by Kory Katseanes, will perform Saturday, Nov. 22, at 8 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall, Harris Fine Arts Center.

Tickets are $11, or $8 with a BYU or student ID. To purchase tickets, call the Fine Arts Ticket Office at (801) 422-4322 or visit byuarts.com.

The Philharmonic Orchestra will present pieces by Samuel Barber, Leonard Bernstein and Hector Berlioz.

The first piece, the Overture to “The School for Scandal” by Barber, is a melodic and energetic piece of the 20th century.

The orchestra will perform the Symphonic Dances from “West Side Story” by Bernstein. The rhythms, dances and melodies will tell a love story amidst rival gangs in the boroughs of New York City.

“It’s shocking to realize that Bernstein wrote this piece in 1955,” Katseanes said. “It premiered a long time ago for music that is so fresh in people’s minds.”

The program finale will be the Symphonie Fantastique, a popular autobiographical story of Hector Berlioz. The symphony tells the story of Berlioz’s life with some additions—falling in love with an Irish actress, dancing with her at a ball and dying at the guillotine. The piece includes a soft melody that represents his love throughout the story.

“Students should come to the concert to hear some of the greatest music ever written, without having to pay lots of money, and gain a cultural education here at BYU,” Katseanes said. “The music is inspiring and can make your life better.”
