University Symphony Orchestra

USO in Mandel Hall

May 4, 2024 | 8:00PM
Mandel Hall

2024 Concerto Competition Winners Katie Gallagher and Eileen Moudou are the featured soloists for the University Symphony Orchestra’s spring quarter concert, performing Béla Bartók’s Viola Concerto and the first movement of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Violin Concerto in G minor respectively. For an inspirational close to the 2023-24 season, the USO will then present Sergei Prokofiev’s monumental Symphony No. 5 in B-flat Major, Op. 100. Of this work, written in the summer of 1944 while the composer was living in an artists’ retreat north of Moscow, Prokofiev wrote: “I conceived of it as glorifying the grandeur of the human spirit...praising the free and happy man – his strength, his generosity, and the purity of his soul.”

Free admission. Donations gratefully accepted at the door: $10 general/$5 students
