The Yale School of Music presents its annual New Music for Orchestra concert with the Yale Philharmonia on Thursday, December 9 at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall in Sprague Hall (470 College Street, New Haven).

Also on the program are several pieces by second-year graduate students in the Yale School of Music’s prestigious composition department.

Meena Shivram will be the Hindustani vocalist in Reena Esmail‘s Aria. Also on the program are Adrian Knight‘s Comblé and Omar Surillo‘s Partner in Crime. Adrian Slywotzky and Yang Jiao, conducting fellows at the School of Music, will each lead one work on the program. Shinik Hahm is the resident conductor of the Yale Philharmonia.
