The Columbia University Orchestra (CUO) is thrilled to welcome audiences back to their first public performance in over two years. The last public performance took place in Fall 2019 prior to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, making this a highly anticipated event for student musicians and Columbia University at large. The orchestra will be performing the same program again on Sunday, April 24th, 2022 at 3pm at Alice Tully Hall.
The program will begin with the introduction to Modest Mussorgsky’s opera Khovanshchina, “Dawn on the Moscow River,” led by Assistant Conductor Emily Praetorius. Maestro Jeffrey Milarsky continues the rest of the program with the 1919 version of Igor Stravinsky’s The Firebird Suite. After a brief intermission, the orchestra will perform Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8 in G Major. This concert will be free of charge and open to the public.
