Conductor Eric Lindholm leads the Pomona College Orchestra in a program of Bernstein, Copland and Thea Musgrave.

The Orchestra is one of the largest and most prestigious performing organizations on campus and has a long tradition as an important creative and cultural outlet for the members of The Claremont Colleges.  The orchestra engages faculty or guest soloists each season, with recent performances featuring such works as Bartók’s Piano Concerto No. 3, Christopher Rouse’s Flute Concerto, and In the Midst of Darkness, Light Persists by Pomona’s own Tom Flaherty. Through the department’s annual concerto competition, student soloists have presented pieces like Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5 (“Emperor”), Brahms’s Violin Concerto, and Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings. Each season concludes with a collaboration with the Pomona College Choir, with recent examples including Vaughan Williams’s Dona nobis pacem, Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms, and the Verdi Requiem. On its own, the orchestra engages music from all across the repertoire, including major works by Beethoven, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Schubert, Stravinsky, Shostakovich, and many others.

The program repeats Sunday, October 14 at 3 p.m.
