Northport Symphony Orchestra’s Classical Music Concert
Friday, April 28, 8pm
Northport High School, 154 Laurel Hill Road, Northport
A classical music concert featuring Symphony No. 5 by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikowsky, as well as compositions by Samuel Taylor-Coleridge and Ernest Chausson.
The evening’s guest conductor – Eric Mahl – believes in the transformative powers of music above all else and that the study of music is essentially an exploration of the human condition. He strives to cultivate an appreciation and understanding of music played with the highest possible level of artistry. In addition to his work with Northport Symphony Orchestra, Mahl is the conductor and artistic director of Orchestra One, conductor with the Geneva Light Opera Company, and associate conductor of the Greenwich Village Orchestra. He holds similar positions with several youth orchestras.
