Kent State University Orchestra Concert "Beauty and the Beast" Features Debussy Led by Student Conductor
The Kent State University Hugh A. Glauser School of Music Orchestra will continue its 2012-2013 season with its second subscription series performance Sunday, Nov. 11, at 3:30 p.m. in the University Auditorium at Cartwright Hall. Cartwright Hall is located at 650 Hilltop Drive, with free parking located off of Terrace Drive.
The performance’s title, “Beauty and the Beast,” translates into the delightful “Prelude to the Afternoon of a Fawn” by Claude Debussy and Dmitri Shostakovich’s famous “Symphony No. 5.”
Second-year conducting graduate student Eunseok Seo will lead the Orchestra’s performance of Debussy’s “Prelude to the Afternoon of a Fawn.” The piece was inspired by the poem “L'apres-midi d'un Faune” by Stephane Mallarme.
Tickets for the performance are $10 for adults and seniors, $5 for students with valid ID and free for all full-time undergraduate students.
The Cartwright Hall box office will open one hour prior to the performance for walk up sales, and will also accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
