The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, led by Music Director Louis Langrée, will perform a community concert at Princeton High School on Monday, November 23 at 7:30 p.m. The concert will be the Orchestra’s first community performance of the 2015-16 season. The CSO will perform Tchaikovsky’s dramatic Fifth Symphony, as well as Bruch’s beloved First Violin Concerto with soloist Gabriel Pegis (Principal Second Violin in the CSO). The concert will open with a performance of Bach and Britten by the Princeton High School Orchestras, which will receive special coaching and instruction from CSO musicians and assistant conductors prior to the performance.

“These community concerts are such an integral way of how the CSO interacts with the Greater Cincinnati region,” said Ahmad Mayes, the CSO’s Director of Community Engagement and Learning. “The Orchestra’s mission is ‘to seek and share inspiration,’ and while we certainly hope to share a little inspiration with the Princeton community, it’s certain we will gain much in working with the students, teachers and families of Princeton High School.”
The Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestra’s Community Concert is a community engagement and learning program offered as part of the Orchestra’s strong commitment to the community and to music education. These concerts are presentations of Sound Discoveries: Music for the Community and are made possible in part by The Corbett Educational Endowment established by The Corbett Foundation and Mrs. Patricia Corbett.
Each season, the Orchestra partners with a local school and performs a fundraising concert in support of its instrumental music programs. The CSO seeks community partner schools with a worthy fundraising project, suitable performance space and parent/support organizations who can help subsidize the basic concert costs through sponsorship. In preparation for the concert featuring the CSO and Pops, a variety of education activities throughout the district will include Orchestra musicians coaching instrumental music students.
