GPYO Community Concert

December 16, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

The Greater Princeton Youth Orchestra (GPYO) will offer their winter concert for the community, on December 16, 2018, at 3 PM, at the Performing Arts Center in Montgomery High School. Admission is free. The highlight of this concert will be Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 5 in D Major /D minor. Written in 1830 for the 300th anniversary of the Augsburg Confession, this symphony was given the subtitle “Reformation”. The frequent use of the Lutheran Hymn “Ein’ feste Berg is unser Gott”, a hymn written by Martin Luther himself while the Augsberg Confession was in session, creates an atmosphere deserving of the subtitle. Through Mendelssohn’s musical ingenuity, the listener is treated to one of the greatest accomplishments of the symphonic idiom. The concert will feature the GPYO Ensembles, Concert Orchestra and Symphonic Orchestra performing pieces by Berlioz, Elgar, Meyer, and Mendelssohn under the baton of Mr. Kawika Kahalehoe and Mr. Christopher Beckett.
