Symphony Concert is tonight

Tonight is our concert featuring the Cornell concerto competition winner Sarah Rice.
We will also be performing Shostakovich's 9th symphony. The concert will be shared with the Wind Ensemble.
Concert is at Ford Hall which is our home for these past two years as Bailey hall is being renovated. Concert is free and open to the public. We won't have quite as many people on stage at the same time, but if we were to combine both members of CUWE and CSO we would have about the same amount of people on stage.

Directions to Ford hall is on our orchestra website.

Musicians Perform in Global 9/11 Remembrance

The School of Music joined thousands of groups around the world in performing Mozart's Requiem on the first anniversary of the September 11 attacks. (See also Remembrances in "Chronicle.") The concept, christened "Rolling Requiem" by organizers, originated in Seattle and grew to include a performance in every time zone beginning at 8:46 a.m. local time, the time of the first attack in New York City one year before. The final tally included 200 events in 26 countries, involving more than 17,000 singers and almost 5,000 instrumental musicians. While many of the events were full-scale performances of the Requiem, some participants unable to prepare the entire work performed parts of it, or simply listened to it. For example, the South Pole station participated by listening to the Requiem.
Here is the website about the event;
