Orchestra to perform under guest conductor, Dec. 5 and 7
Posted December 2, 2003; 01:56 p.m.
The Princeton University Orchestra , under the direction of guest conductor Hobart Earle, will perform at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 5, and at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 7, in Richardson Auditorium, Alexander Hall.
Earle , a 1983 Princeton graduate, is in his 12th season as music director and principal conductor of the Odessa Philharmonic Orchestra in Ukraine. He was the first American citizen to head an orchestra in the former Soviet Union. Under his leadership, the orchestra was elevated from regional to federal status in 1993, and again in 2002 to national status. It is the only performing arts organization in the country to have accomplished this feat.
The Dec. 5 and 7 program will include Tchaikovsky's "Capriccio Italien," Skalkottas' "Greek Dances" and Dvorak's Symphony No. 9 "New World."
Tickets are $5 for students (Tiger pass accepted) and $15 for the general public, and are available at the Richardson box office, (609) 258-5000. For more information, contact Lauren Carpenter .
