Congratulations to the Columbia University Orchestra on its magnificent performance at Alice Tully Hall!
This gala performance on April 18, 2015 received standing ovations from an audience of 800. The program, conducted by Music Director Jeffrey Milarsky, featured Ernest Chausson's Poeme, Op. 25 (with Joseph Morag, violin solo) and Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 1 in D Major. The 2015 and 2016 Performances in Alice Tully Hall were made possible by a generous gift from Jo and Ken Merlau, parents of an orchestra member in the Columbia College Class of 2016.
Founded in 1896, the Columbia University Orchestra is the oldest continually operating university orchestra in the United States.
