Reinhold Glière’s Concerto for Harp and Orchestra in Eb Major, op. 74 – Allegro moderato; Joyce Lee ’17, piano, playing Camille Saint-Saens Piano Concerto No. 2 in G Minor, op. 22 – Allegro ma non-troppo; Tiffany Sun ’18, flute, interpreting Jacques Ibert’s Flute Concerto – Allegro scherzando; and Harold Theurer ’17, baritone, singing Mozart, “Hai già vinta la causa,” from Marriage of Figaro.

The Berkshire Symphony brings the season to a finale with their rendition of Zoltán Kodály’s Hary Janos Suite.

Founded in 1946, the 75-member Berkshire Symphony unites talented Williams College music students with music faculty and other professionals. By every measure, the Berkshire repertoire is as varied and demanding as that of a professional orchestra. This season the orchestra offers a congenial mix of classics and modern music, performed in the historic yet newly renovated Chapin Hall.
