Philadelphia Orchestra on Campus

Phila Orchestra

May 28, 2010 — With warm weather here, some of you may feel it’s too hot to trek to the Kimmel Center to hear the Philadelphia Orchestra. We have an alternative. Join us in Bossone's Mitchell Auditorium for a Philadelphia Orchestra concert cybercast on Tuesday, June 8th at 1:30 PM. This initiative features a full-length Philadelphia Orchestra concert beamed to campus in HD and digital sound. Conductor Charles Dutoit, Violinist Arabella Steinbacher, Violist Choong-Jin Chang and Cellinst Arto Noras will play Strauss’ Don Juan and Don Quixote and Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5. The cybercast affords you all the sights and sounds of the best orchestra seats right here on campus and free of charge.

Youngmoo Kim, Assistant Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering and students in the MET (Music and Entertainment Technology) Lab will work behind the scenes to ensure top quality sound and picture for broadcast. These broadcasts are also part of an award-winning senior design project using new technologies to facilitate music education and appreciation. Professor Kim will give a brief presentation highlighting the technologies of this project before the concert program begins. For more information, please visit http://music.ece.drexel.edu. The concert is free of charge thanks to sponsorship by the College of Engineering, the Pennoni Honors College, and the Westphal College and is hosted by Music and Entertainment Technology Laboratory.
