IMMACULATE UNIVERSITY, PA — Immaculata University announces that the Curtis Symphony Orchestra is continuing its concert series at Immaculata with a performance on Thursday, April 28, at 7:30 p.m. in Alumnae Hall Theater. For ticket information, visit www.immaculata.edu/curtis-orchestra.
Conductor Robert Spano (Conducting ’85) reunites with “force of nature” Yefim Bronfman (Piano ’77) to perform Béla Bartók’s ferocious Second Piano Concerto. Bronfman, a recent addition to the Curtis faculty, won a GRAMMY Award for his recording of the concerto. The program continues with Tchaikovsky’s brooding Fifth Symphony. In this work, resolve and sweeping optimism clash against bouts of steely melancholy.
“We are indeed excited at Immaculata University for the return of the Symphony Orchestra of the Curtis Institute of Music to our campus on Thursday, April 28, 2022,” stated William Carr, DMA, Steinway Artist and professor of music and piano at Immaculata University. “With Steinway artist, Yefim Bronfman performing the Bela Bartok Piano Concerto no. 2 and this world class ensemble being led by Maestro Robert Spano, Immaculata University provides a performance venue for this internationally renowned ensemble to transform audiences while at the same time inspiring young performing artists in the development of their potential……as such, Immaculata University participates and celebrates in the musical performance excellence that is defined by the Curtis Institute of Music.”
With the designation as an All-Steinway School, Immaculata University stated that it affirms its continued commitment to its music programs continues to expand. Immaculata offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music (with performance emphasis), or a Bachelor of Music in music education or music therapy and a Master of Arts program in music therapy.
