Reading Symphony Orchestra Performs with Local Painter in Interdisciplinary Concert

On May 5, Pennsylvania’s Reading Symphony Orchestra, whose musicians are members of Local 135-211 (Reading, PA), will conclude its 2017-2018 season with a program entitled “Picture This!”

The unique interdisciplinary event will feature local artist Michele Byrne, who will paint the orchestra in real time as it performs Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, Tchaikovsky’s Capriccio Italien, and Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2, featuring Russian pianist Ilya Yakushev. The audience will be able to watch Byrne’s work-in-progress, which will be projected on large screens during the performance.
