The Pennsylvania Chamber Orchestra will host a “Housewarming Party for the PCO at the State Theatre”. The event is a fundraiser to benefit the orchestra’s move to the State Theater which will be their new performance “home” for the 2017-2018 concert season.
The PCO is Central PA’s all–professional chamber orchestra which performs three regular season orchestral concerts, two performances of Handel’s Messiah in December, plus several additional chamber music concerts featuring small ensembles from within the orchestra during their concert season. The orchestra is comprised of the area’s top professional musicians and features world-class soloists under the direction of music director, Yaniv Attar.
The Housewarming Party will feature finger foods by Harrison’s of State College, beer from Hickey’s, wine from Seven Mountains Wine Cellars, tours of the venue, and a brief pre-season talk by music director, Yaniv Attar.
Live harp music will be performed by local harpist, Anne Sullivan, who began her concert career at age twelve when she appeared twice as soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra. She is known nationally as a recitalist and chamber musician, performing regularly with SPARX flute and harp duo, Duo Parisienne violin and harp duo, and the Easterly Chamber Players. Ms. Sullivan was a member of the music theory faculty at the Curtis Institute of Music, and she is currently the harp instructor at the University of Delaware and Swarthmore College, and founder and director of Harp in the Mountains Summer Festival.
