MIT Professional Education is proud to sponsor the 22nd annual performance of the MIT Summer Philharmonic Orchestra (MITSPO). The annual classical music concert, which is open to the public and free for all to attend, returns to the MIT Kresge Auditorium in Cambridge on Friday, July 27, at 8:00 pm. Doors will open at 7:30 pm.
Led by Music Director and Conductor George Ogata, this year's theme is “Weathering the Storm,” with arrangements chosen to reflect it. The orchestra will perform Ludwig Van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, Pastoral, as well as Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring.
MITSPO has been the preeminent summer community orchestra for more than twenty years. Composed of emerging musicians from all throughout the Greater Boston Area, MITSPO hosts one concert each summer, making it a popular evening for music fans of all ages. The summer concerts consistently fill up Kresge Auditorium, a 1,200-seat venue, with permanent fans and new attendees each year. MIT Professional Education has been associated with the all-volunteer orchestra since its inception.
