Rising Stars From Manhattan School of Music Perform Dvorak and Beethoven at the Studio Around the Corner The Town of Southeast Cultural Arts Coalition presents Students from Manhattan School of Music performing Dvorak and Beethoven at the Studio Around the Corner on Saturday, December 8th at 7PM. This marks the first in the Coalition’s series of collaborations with nearby Universities for cultural arts programming.
This past year, Manhattan School of Music celebrated the twentieth anniversary of its groundbreaking Graduate Program in Orchestral Performance, chaired by Glenn Dicterow, Concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic. In the two decades since this prestigious program was founded, it has become a model for others, and its graduates have won orchestral positions worldwide. The program intensively prepares students as performers – through master classes, mock auditions, repertoire classes, orchestra concerts, and private lessons – while also introducing them to nonmusical aspects of today’s symphony orchestra: orchestral governance, artistic planning, community engagement, and audience development. The faculty comprises some of the industry’s most respected and recognized orchestra musicians, including principal players of major New York orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic and The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. In the past year alone, current and former students have won positions with the New York Philharmonic, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Baltimore, Milwaukee and Detroit Symphonies, The United States Air Force Band, Colorado, Des Moines and New World Symphonies, San Francisco Opera, and the New York City Ballet.
The performance at Studio Around the Corner will feature eleven students playing the Terzetto for two violins and viola by the Czech composer, Antonin Dvorak, and the Octet for two oboes, two clarinets, two bassoons and two horns by Ludwig van Beethoven. The performers, including Bo Wu, from Thongqing, China, and Henry Wang, from St. Louis, Missouri, violins, and Elizabeth Harraman, French horn, from Rolling Meadows, Illinois, will give a historical and informational talk about the works. The Coalition’s Holiday Festival of Trees will be on display at this time, and refreshments will be available.
