Orchestra to perform student, faculty works, Dec. 3-4
Posted November 18, 2004; 05:13 p.m.
For the first time in its history, the Princeton University Orchestra will perform a work composed by an undergraduate during concerts at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 3-4, in Richardson Auditorium, Alexander Hall.
"Reflection for Orchestra" was written by 2004 graduate Kiri Murakami as her senior thesis. Murakami was a co-concertmaster of the orchestra and won the concerto competition last year. Her piece, according to conductor Michael Pratt, "warrants special treatment." The orchestra also will perform a work by a member of the music faculty.
Assistant professor Dan Trueman's "Three Pieces for Hardanger Fiddle and Orchestra" will feature the composer as a soloist on a nine-string violin from the Norwegian folk music/dance tradition. Completing the program will be Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 "Pastoral."
Tickets are available online through University Ticketing or by calling the Richardson Auditorium box office at (609) 258-5000.
