The Concepción Symphony Orchestra offered a performance to the whole community in a crowded UdeC Forum. The free concert took place on Friday, January 8, as a part of the UdeC Summer School, which this year revolves around the topic ‘Sounds and their inhabitable spaces’.
The performance was conducted by the young Chilean maestro Paolo Bortolameolli, who gave the audience a spoken introduction to the works played.
In the first part of the concert, the musicians played highlights from suites 1 y 2 from ‘Romeo and Juliet’ ballet by Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev, a work inspired by Shakespeare’s tragedy. Then, they delighted the listeners with Piotr Ilich Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.
The Concepción Symphony Orchestra will perform again on Friday, January 22, in a concert of musical memories: ‘Vuelven los 80s’ [‘The 80’s are back’], homage to a decade, which will also take place in the UdeC Forum, with free admission to the whole community.
