–New York’s new orchestra plays a free concert in Midtown
–Haydn, Stravinsky, & David Diamond
–Conducted by Gerard Schwarz; “Drew virtuoso playing from the orchestra” –The Seattle Times


Haydn: Symphony No. 96
A coy start to a flashy end; a chandelier fell during its premiere!

David Diamond: Romeo and Juliet
Full of pathos and beauty; The overture alone conveys the drama of the entire play.

Stravinsky: Pulcinella
Witty and rollicking; Pulcinella is a man chased by all the girls…and their jilted boyfriends.


KATHERINE MAYSEK, mezzosoprano
LEO RADOSAVLJEVIC, bass-baritone
