Thursday, May 23, 2019, 7:30 pm
Join the Allentown Symphony Orchestra and Diane Wittry, Music Director and Conductor for a unique “behind-the-scenes” event. Inside the Score: A New Cello Concerto takes the audience on a journey from the composer’s vision -- to rehearsal -- to live performance.
During the first portion of Inside the Score, Diane Wittry, joined by composer Matthew Quayle, discuss the orchestra’s rehearsal of this new piece featuring ASO Assistant Principal Cello, Jameson Platte. Then the ASO will premiere the first live performance of this up-and-coming American composer’s work – a rare opportunity so see, hear and understand how the music goes from a composer’s inspiration to the concert hall.
Proceeds from sales to benefit ASO Education and Community Engagement programs, including El Sistema Lehigh Valley.
