String Orchestra to Perform at The University of Scranton

The University of Scranton String Orchestra will perform in concert on Friday, Nov. 15, at 7:30 p.m. in the University’s Houlihan-McLean Center (Mulberry Street and Jefferson Avenue). The concert is free of admission charge and open to the public.

The program focuses on music for string orchestra written by late 20th and early 21st century composers. Selections include dance-based music from a variety of cultures, such as Mosier’s “Baltic Dances” and “American Reel,” Newbold’s “Fire Dance,” and Spata’s “Maharaja,” as well as Hofeldt’s “She Will Hang The Night With Stars,” Atwell’s “Drifen” and Balmages’ “30,000 and Forever,” and more.

The University of Scranton String Orchestra is a 33-member ensemble comprised of members of the University community – mostly undergraduate students, joined by a few members of the faculty and staff – who are brought together by a mutual love of music-making.
