Romantic masterworks concert

To open their 43rd season, the Emory University Symphony Orchestra (ESO) directed by Richard Prior will present a free concert on Friday, Oct. 24 at 8 p.m. in the Schwartz Center featuring Tchaikovsky’s renowned “’Pathetique’ Symphony No. 6 in B Minor” and Rossini’s overture to “The Barber of Seville.” Emory’s University Chorus will join the ESO and music faculty Deborah Thoreson, piano, for Beethoven’s “Choral Fantasy.”

In Prior’s opinion “the ESO is an extraordinary manifestation of the Emory population. The students bring a thousand years of collective musical experience to the stage and come from every conceivable part of the academic spectrum with double majors in the sciences, humanities and arts, yet they are unified by their love of humanistic expression through the medium of music.”
