Carnegie Hall Presents

Orchestra of St. Luke's

New York City’s Orchestra of St. Luke’s puts its focus on Mozart and the Classical period in 2011-2012. Roger Norrington leads the group in a concert that includes Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto with Jeremy Denk and Mozart’s Symphony No. 39. All of this is a prelude to a series finale with Iván Fischer that is truly grand—Mozart’s Requiem.

The Orchestra of St. Luke’s closes its Carnegie Hall season with an all-Mozart program, featuring one of New York City’s most distinguished professional choruses, Musica Sacra.
