The orchestra, led by David Hayes, comprises about half of Mannes College The New School for Music's 300 students. Joined by the Riverside Choral Society under the direction by Patrick Gardner, they will perform Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms and Bruckner's Symphony No. 9.
In preparation for the Carnegie appearance, the orchestra will give a free concert of Bruckner's Symphony No. 9 at The Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard on November 3.
Hayes is the music director of the Philadelphia Singers and director of orchestral and conducting studies at Mannes. In additon to engagements with the Mannes Orchestra and Curtis Symphony, he will conduct the Philadelphia Orchestra in January.
Free tickets to the November concert in Carnegie's Stern Auditorium are available at the Carnegie Hall Box Office.
