University of Southern Denmark Symphony Orchestra and Hershey Symphony Orchestra present "Bridges to the Future"
"Bridges to the Future" brings together two distinguished symphony orchestras for one evening of extraordinary music. The University of Southern Denmark Symphony Orchestra takes the stage first, playing selections from an eclectic repertoire encompassing everything from traditional Scandinavian music to contemporary tango. It is an approach that has won them the support of several distinguished sponsors, including UNESCO, actor Viggo Mortensen, and saxophonist William Clinton. Next, the Pennsylvania-based Hershey Symphony orchestra showcases a range and musicality refined over four decades of performing.
Among the world's most storied venues, Carnegie Hall has hosted the finest performers since philanthropist Andrew Carnegie founded it more than 120 years ago. Finished in 1891, the structure was planned just before the advent of steel-frame construction, necessitating a solid masonry design that insulates its halls from outside noise and lends the exterior its red-brick charm. The hall's architects traveled to Europe during the planning stages, carefully noting the acoustic qualities of the continent's best venues while finding themselves put off by the overwrought baroque stylings of many of the buildings. The resultant design eschews flowery ornamentation for a spare, elegant Italian Renaissance style, coupled with peerless sonic resonance. The Hall's centerpiece—the historic Perelman Stage—is renowned for its acoustics and Italian design rife with white walls, gold fixtures, and graffiti tags from Michelangelo.
