CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS
Tuesday, December 24, 2013 | 7 PM
New York String Orchestra
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Celebrate the season with this New York City holiday tradition. For more than 40 years, this group of young musicians-in-training—participants in the annual seminar of the New York String Orchestra—has lit up Christmas Eve at Carnegie Hall with its annual concert. This season, they return to perform a program that includes Mendelssohn’s utterly delightful Violin Concerto with violinist Bella Hristova, as well as two works by Mozart—his symphonic ode to the city of Paris and the overture to his sublime opera, The Marriage of Figaro.
