The Yale School of Music presents the Yale Philharmonia on Friday, February 26 at 7:30 pm. Conducting fellow Heejung Park will lead the orchestra in works by Beethoven, Lieberson, and Haydn.
The first half of the program will feature the two students in the School of Music’s newly revised Artist Diploma program: pianist Wai-Yin Wong and mezzo-soprano Evanna Chiew. Wong will open the program as the soloist in Beethoven‘s Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor, Op. 37.
Mezzo-soprano Evanna Chiew will join the orchestra for the Neruda Songs by American composer Peter Lieberson. Written for his wife, singer Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, the work is a cycle of five songs for mezzo-soprano and orchestra set to love poems by twentieth-century poet Pablo Neruda. MORE
