The Syracuse Symphony Orchestra (SSO) is offering specially priced tickets to Syracuse University students with SU I.D. for upcoming performances of “Chang Plays Brahms” March 3 and 4 at 8 p.m. the Mulroy Civic Center at OnCenter. The tickets cost $5 with a valid SU I.D.
On March 3, the SSO will also host the 2006 Spring Faculty Mixer, open to all area collegiate faculty. The mixer is $40 and includes dinner at L’Adour Restaurant, 110 Montgomery St., and a ticket to the concert. The evening will begin with a cash bar at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 6. Concert-goers are invited to attend the pre-concert discussion, “Behind the Music,” at 7 p.m., which will be led by SSO Music Director Daniel Hege. Faculty members who have already purchased tickets to the concert may purchase dinner for $25 by calling the SSO Customer Service Center. Reservations are required.
Part of the SSO’s popular Post-Standard Classics Series, “Chang Plays Brahms” will feature celebrated violinist and one of classical music’s most captivating and gifted performers, Sarah Chang, and will be conducted by Hege. The concert will include American composer Jennifer Higdon’s rhythmic and hard-driving “Machine,” Bartok’s “Concerto for the Orchestra” and a final piece in which Chang will join the SSO to perform Brahms’ riveting “Violin Concerto.”
A remarkable violin prodigy, Chang has matured into a young artist whose musical insight, technical virtuosity and emotional range continue to astonish. She has appeared across the world; collaborated with major orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony and the Boston Symphony; and has reached an even wider audience through television appearances, concert broadcasts and best-selling recordings for EMI Classics.
Regularly priced tickets for the concert start at $16. For more information or to order tickets, call the SSO Customer Service Center at 424-8200 or (800) 724-3810, orvisit http://www.syracusesymphony.org.
