This Junior Orchestra's Concert Comes With an Interactive Twist
Catch some classical music and then some.
(SPOT.ph) Have you ever been to an orchestral concert where the sweet symphonies were accompanied by soft snoring? It's usually just a joke, but we can't blame people for actually dozing off at times. The Manila Symphony Junior Orchestra is shaking things up with an interactive concert—a cross between a discussion and a perfeormance—that's sure to keep the snores at bay. In Pursuit of Excellence will be held on August 17, 6:30 pm at the Far Eastern University Auditorium, along Nicanor Reyes Street, Sampaloc, Manila City.
The Manila Symphony Junior Orchestra (MSJO) will be playing music from different genres: classical, Filipino folk, and even Western pop music. In between the music though, Principal Conductor Jeffrey Solares will be sharing some annotations, plus he'll be leading demonstrations of musical concepts for the audience. Tickets are at P500 for Orchestra seats and P300 for Balcony and can be bought through Ticket2Me.
The orchestra has also invited Jeffrey Fernandez, a 13-year-old pianist from Berlin, to perform. Don't be surprised by how young they all look—the MSJO is composed of young students from the Manila Symphony Orchestra Music Academy.
