Description

On Sunday, February 12, 2017 at 3 pm at the Purchase College Performing Arts Center, the Philharmonic warmly invites music-lovers of all ages to hop aboard Principal Conductor Ted Sperling’s guided tour to a family-friendly program, perfect for all ages yet fully satisfying to the most sophisticated musical palates. The annual Friends & Family concert will feature rising star singer Julia Bullock.

Julia Bullock has been described in the press as ravishingly visceral, the evening’s most remarkable showstopper, and for her clarity of delivery beauty of sound opulent and glorious. Equally at home with opera and concert repertoire, she has both captivated and inspired audiences through her versatile artistry, probing intellect, and commanding stage presence. The orchestra will shine in Stravinsky’s monumental Firebird Suite featuring 60 musicians. The program also includes Ms. Bullock singing works of Mozart, Josephine Baker, Bernstein and Gershwin plus the philharmonic performing Glinka’s Russlan & Ludmilla Overture.
Before the concert children are invited to get up close and personal with the instruments at a free Instrument Petting Zoo beginning at 2 pm. Orchestra musicians from the Philharmonic will be on hand in the lobby to guide young listeners as they explore violins, cellos, drums and more. February 12 concert tickets for young people 17 and under are free with a paid adult ticket.
