The University Orchestra will present its Annual Family Orchestra Concert on Tuesday, March 3, on Staller Center’s Main Stage at 7:30 pm. The Orchestra will perform this one-hour interactive concert, “Orchestral Contrasts,” with conductor Susan Deaver. The featured soloist is violinist Sophie Bowden, winner of the 2019 Stony Brook University Young Artists Program Concerto Competition. She will perform the first movement of Saint-Saens Violin Concerto No. 3 with the University Orchestra.
