NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- New Rochelle resident Maya Holmes recently helped Ithaca College's Symphony Orchestra make beautiful music at Lincoln Center.
Holmes, a senior flute performance major in the Ithaca College School of Music, performed recently at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall.
"Giving its students the opportunity to perform at one of the world's most prominent venues exemplifies the Ithaca College School of Music's creative and innovative training environment for young musicians," Jeffery Meyer, the orchestra's conductor, said in a statement. "The School of Music provides its students with a solid, traditional groundwork in musicianship and artistry while at the same time encouraging students to experience new musical connections that are adventurous, contemporary and relevant."
The Symphony Orchestra performed Ligeti's "Atmospheres" and Lutoslawski's "Concerto for Orchestra." The Ithaca College Choir sang "Laudibus in sanctis" by Byrd and "Hymn to St. Cecilia" by Britten. Both ensembles gave a combined performance of Poulenc's "Gloria."
Home to the New York Philharmonic and the Metropolitan Opera, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts has been called by Frommer's Travel Guides as "New York City's foremost institution."
