|Alabama Symphony Orchestra Performs New Works At Carnegie Hall Debut|The Alabama Symphony Orchestra puts on a fabulous performance at Carnegie Hall.
Conductor Justin Brown led the Alabama Symphony Orchestra at Carnegie Hall earlier this year in its performance of two local premieres of new works by Avner Dorman (Astrolatry) and Paul Lansky (Shapeshifters). To end the concert, the Orchestra captivated its audience with a "lean, fleet and infectious account of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony" (Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times).
Just days prior, this fine orchestra gave a sneak peak of their Carnegie Hall repertoire with a performance in the Civil War battle town of Gettysburg, PA. Composer Avner Dorman, who was composer-in-residence at the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, is currently on the faculty of Gettysburg College, where the Orchestra performed.
