Special Performance: The One & the Many

Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4, Op. 58

On Saturday. March 23 at 7:30 pm in Aquinas Hall, the Orchestra will join three talented piano soloists in presenting “The One & the Many,” a program of three piano concerti by three musical legends – Mozart, Beethoven and Ravel.  This special concert represents a unique partnership between the GNSO and Moxart, Inc., a Philadelphia-area non-profit that provides musicians with opportunities that otherwise might not be available.  Its Concerto Program enables the musicians (any instrument) to play a concerto with a fine orchestra.  When Moxart reached out to the GNSO, we were delighted to respond positively.

“A concerto is any piece for a solo instrumentalist and orchestra and usually consists of three movements,” said Maestro Ger.  “One of the hallmarks of a concerto is the dialogue between the group (orchestra) and the individual (soloist).  Sometimes it is cooperative, sometimes competitive and sometimes an outright confrontation,” he noted.

Special March 23 Ticket Price

Because the March 23 concert is an addition to our 2018/19 concert schedule, it is not included in the annual subscription.  However, the tremendous support that the Orchestra has already received – the Holiday Concert set records for attendance and revenue – enables us to price all tickets at $25/person.  And, of course, students are admitted free.
