Organ Symphony at the Basilica
Date(s) - 17 Feb 2020
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
On Sunday, February 16, the University of Central Florida Symphony Orchestra will perform a free concert!
On the program will be the colossal “Organ Symphony in C Major” by Camille Saint-Saëns for organ and orchestra. This very popular piece receives fewer actual performances than expected because most concert halls built today do not contain an adequate pipe organ. The University of Central Florida Symphony Orchestra is under the direction of Dr. Chung Park. Dr. Park’s conducting has received wide critical acclaim. The Miami Herald hailed his performance of Stravinsky’s Soldier’s Tale as “masterfully directed” and his conducting of Debussy’s Afternoon of a Faun as “lucid and refined.”
