Marywood University’s Symphony Orchestra will perform a Family Concert on Friday, November 9, 2018, at 7:30 p.m., in the Sette LaVerghetta Center for Performing Arts. The performance is free and open to the public.

The concert will feature the world premiere of a piece by composer, Karen Neifeh-Harmon, titled “Celtic Princess of the Danube.” Nearly 100 young music students from Marywood University’s String Project, as well as from schools in Philadelphia and Oklahoma, will join the University’s Orchestra on stage for this piece, which tells the story of the mysterious princess through music.

Other music in the program will include Saint-Saens’ “Carnival of the Animals,” Rossini’s “Overture to the Barber of Seville,” and Vaughan Williams’ “English Folksong Suite,” and “Greensleeves.”

Marywood University’s String Project is an after-school, pre-collegiate program for students ages 7-18. Participants take small-group lessons in violin, viola, cello, and double bass; participate in the orchestra; and perform in concerts. String Project participants are divided into three levels (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) based on experience.
