Grad Night with the Yale Philharmonia Friday, Sep. 24
Events bring together grad students for a concert and reception
All Yale graduate and professional students are invited to the School of Music’s first Yale Philharmonia concert of the year on Friday, September 24th at 8pm in Woolsey Hall. A block of seats will be held just for grad/prof students and their guests until 7:55pm. No tickets are required; just tell the usher that you are there for Grad Night.
Following the performance, all 21+ students are invited to a reception with the musicians in the GPSCY Lounge with food sponsored by the McDougal Center. Bring your concert program to GPSCY for free cover and $2 well drink specials.
Shinik Hahm will conduct the program, which opens with Rossini’s popular William Tell Overture. The eminent concert pianist Peter Frankl will join the orchestra for Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major. The program will culminate in Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique, a stunning orchestral illustration of unrequited love colored with dreams both joyful and macabre.
