Celebrating their twelfth season, the Astoria Symphony Orchestra will bring the music of Mozart, Brahms, and Barber to Long Island City High School on Sunday, March 15 at 5 p.m.

Concertgoers will be in for an additional treat, as Astoria resident and special guest soprano, Colette Boudreaux will be singing Samuel Barber’s classic Knoxville: Summer of 1915, along with text from early twentieth century poet James Agee. Boudreaux was a prize winner in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, and has performed at Carnegie Hall and St. John the Divine Cathedral.

The program will include Mozart’s overture to the opera The Magic Flute, and close out with a flourish: the rousing final symphony of Johannes Brahms’s Symphony No.4.
The Astoria Symphony Orchestra is a professional orchestra focused on bringing classical music to Western Queens, performing four to five times per year and featuring talented individuals from Astoria and throughout the New York City area. This season, the orchestra welcomes enthusiastic new conductor, David Štech, serving his first year.

Tickets will be sold at the door for $25, but can be purchased discounted online on the orchestra’s website for $20. Students and seniors can also enjoy the event at the discounted price of $20.

Long Island City High School is located at 14-30 Broadway, Long Island City. For more information about ASO, check out their Facebook, Twitter, and website. See you there!
