KSO features Emmanuel Ceysson in November 18th Concert at Chenery Auditorium

Emmanuel Ceysson

Kalamazoo, MI November 4, 2016 – The Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Music Director Raymond Harvey, presents internationally renowned Principal harpist of the Metropolitan Opera House, Emmanuel Ceysson, for the third concert of its 2016-17 Symphonic Series. Billed the "enfant terrible" of the harp, Ceysson's virtuosity and infectious enthusiasm will be on full display in Glière's Harp Concerto.
Maestro Harvey rounds out the program with the music of Pulitzer Prize winning composer John Corigliano and Felix Mendelssohn. Corigliano's Voyage from 1978 is a string orchestra setting of Baudelaire's "L'invitation au voyage." Felix Mendelssohn wrote his Symphony No. 3 "Scottish" after a walking tour of Scotland.
