Performance for Young People: Curtis Symphony Orchestra
February 3, 2020 | 10:00 am
Curtis Symphony Orchestra
Osmo Vänskä, conductor
Jonathan Biss, piano
Acclaimed for its “otherworldly ensemble and professional level of sophistication” (New York Times), the Curtis Symphony Orchestra offers a dynamic showcase of tomorrow’s exceptional young talent from the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. The Institute trains musicians to engage a global community through the highest level of artistry and counts Leonard Bernstein, Hilary Hahn, Robert Spano, Yuja Wang, and numerous other luminaries among its alumni. This performance brings Beethoven specialist (and current Curtis faculty member) Jonathan Biss back to UGA in a performance conducted by Osmo Vänskä, music director of the Minnesota Orchestra.
Performances for Young People last approximately 60 minutes and are designed for children and youth grades 2-12 (age 6 and older). Admission is $2/person, including teachers and chaperones. Groups only. For information and reservations, please call the Box Office beginning July 22 at (706) 542-4400.
