Free Chamber Orchestra Concert to Feature Outstanding High School Soloist


Contributed by Erik Kibelsbeck

The Ithaca College Chamber Orchestra will present its final concert of the season on Tuesday, April 11, at 8:15 p.m. in Ford Hall. Jeffrey Grogan will conduct the free concert. Elina Askelrud, the winner of the Ithaca College High School Piano Competition, will perform the first movement of Schumann’s Piano Concerto. Graduate conductor Devin Hughes will lead Respighi’s “Trittico Botticelliano,” and the concert will conclude with Haydn’s “Symphony No. 90.”

The Chamber Orchestra is a small ensemble selected by competitive audition in the School of Music. They perform at least four times a year presenting music more appropriate for a smaller orchestra.

The School of Music presents some 300 concerts throughout the year. For information about the concerts, please visit or call 274-3717.
