The second annual Conservatory Classic, “An Evening with Past, Present and Future Harker Stars,” will be on Saturday evening, Jan. 2. Last year’s Classic helped raise money for the Orchestra’s trip to the National Orchestra Cup at Lincoln Center in New York where the group won the Forte Award. This year, the program will include vocalists and musical theater alumni, said Chris Florio, orchestra director. “The concert will feature alumni, current students and even some middle school musicians. That’s why we themed it past, present and future,” he said.
Audrey Kwong ’07, who is doing much of the work to make the event happen, added, “There will be a Guys Gig number from alumni and current students, a string octet, an alumni jazz combo and solos from current students.”
The event will be held in Nichols Hall at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 and will benefit Harker’s performing arts program, but “more importantly we want to raise awareness about the arts and our plans for the Phase IV campaign,” that will bring a new performing arts center to Harker, he said.
