University of Scranton String Orchestra to Perform Nov. 11

Nov 2, 2016

The University of Scranton String Orchestra will perform in concert on Friday, Nov. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the University’s Houlihan-McLean Center (Mulberry Street and Jefferson Avenue). The concert is free of admission charge and open to the public.

The program includes music by Bach, Gliere, Glinka, Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Nelhybel.

Vaclav Nelhybel began his relationship with The University of Scranton in 1984, and was composer-in-residence at the time of his death in 1996. Since 1999, the University has been home to The Nelhybel Collection, which provides researchers with access to the composer’s published and unpublished compositions, personal papers and manuscript scores, among other materials. The collection is curated by his wife, Mrs. Dorothea Nelhybel. The 20th anniversary of his death is being commemorated throughout this year by additional performances of his works on concert programs throughout the world.

The University of Scranton String Orchestra is a 25-member ensemble comprised of members of the University community, mostly undergraduate students, joined by a few members of the faculty and staff, who are brought together by a mutual love of music-making.
