Edward and Elaine Altman Concert
On Wednesday, May 28, at 7:30 p.m. ISO will present the first annual Edward and Elaine Altman Concert at the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall. The ISO Symphony, Concert Orchestra, and Symphonic Band will perform.
ISO’s Board decided to name a major concert each season in honor of the Altmans to recognize their extraordinary contributions over the years and the exceptional leadership of Edward Altman as Board President and Chairman.
Highlights of the concert will include performances by winners of the Constance Mensch Concerto Competition. In Hae Yap, a junior at Stuyvesant High School and a student of Jorge Corpus, will perform a movement from Katchaturian’s Violin Concerto with the ISO Symphony. Lena-Marie Stoger, a sixth grade student at Special Music School studying with Victor Basis, will perform Sicilienne and Rigaudon by Fritz Kreisler with Concert Orchestra.
The ISO Symphony will also perform the program that it will take on its performance tour to Scotland this summer.
Tickets are $10 to $250 and can be purchased through the ISO web site beginning on April 30. $250 tickets include an after-concert reception in honor of the Altmans.
