University Symphony Orchestra

  1. Monday February 24 8:00pm
Hill Auditorium

Kenneth Kiesler, conductor
Karalyn Schubring, piano

The University Symphony Orchestra presents in contrasting music by three U-M women composers: the Piano Concerto by current senior Karalyn Schubring (who is also the piano soloist), Propellers in the Sun by alumna Tanner Porter, and Rain On It by faculty composer Kristin Kuster.  Music of two great French composers rounds out the program. Faure’s lyrical and ultimately tragic Pelleas and Melisande is followed by Ravel’s masterpiece Daphnis and Chloe, Suite No. 2, which evokes the ancient myth with opulent impressionistic orchestral colors played by an expanded orchestra.

Program:
Kristin Kuster - Rain on It
Tanner Porter - Propellers in the Sun
Karalyn Schubring - Piano Concerto
Faure - Pelléas et Mélisande
Ravel - Daphnis et Chloé Suite No. 2
