The Penfield Symphony Orchestra Presents a concert, “Star-Crossed Lovers,” on February 12, 2024.

The Penfield Symphony Orchestra, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to enriching the Rochester community for more than 60 years, will present a concert, “Star-Crossed Lovers,” on February 12, 2024, the third concert of the PSO’s 68th season. The concert will be led by guest conductor Rebecca Bryant Novak, the third of four finalist candidates for the PSO’s open Music Director position. Ms. Novak is an Assistant Conductor of the Eastman Philharmonia and has previously served as the Associate Conductor of the National Philharmonic in North Bethesda, MD.

The concert commences with the catchy and rhythmically lively Libertango by Astor Piazzolla, Argentina’s father of a unique style of music – the Tango. Next comes Lyric for Strings by American composer George Walker. His affinity for thoughtful spirituals and folk music is apparent in the opening, while the piece concludes with an atmosphere of hope. Closing our first half is Tchaikovsky’s much-loved Romeo and Juliet overture-fantasy. Our second half contrasts this concept of the two lovers with an alternative depiction in Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet ballet.

The concert will be held on February 12, 2024, at 7:30 p.m. at the Penfield High School Auditorium, located at 25 High School Drive in Penfield, New York
