Igor Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps and Bernard Herrmann’s “Psycho” Suite, as well as new compositions by students at the NYU Steinhardt School, will be performed by the NYU Symphony at Symphony Space, Friday, February 26.

Maestro Constantine Kitsopoulos will conduct the program that also includes performances of the work of 2016 NYU Steinhardt Film Score Composition Competition winners Hyoung-bin Kim, Madeleine Klouda, Nancy Li, James Newberry, and Mihwa Yun. As the scores are played, the animated films they were created for - developed by NYU Tisch School of the Arts students and alumni Dan Costales, Jeremy Jensen, Gene Kim and Sophie Lie - will be simultaneously screened. This multi-media presentation will be followed by 2016 NYU Steinhardt Composition Competition winner Alba S. Torremocha’s Serendipia.

“Herrmann’s Psycho and Stravinsky’s Rite exemplify collaborations that make history in changing the course of the art form and influencing subsequent generations,” said Joseph Bongiorno, music associate professor of string studies at NYU Steinhardt. “These works represent evolution in twentieth and twenty-first century artistic collaborations and composition.”

The concert is free and open to the public and will take place at 8 p.m. Registration is not required. Symphony Space is located at 2537 Broadway at 95th Street. For more information about this and future NYU Symphony performances, contact nyu.orchestras@gmail.com.

Steinhardt’s Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions, established in 1925, instructs over 1,600 students majoring in music and performing arts programs. Music and Performing Arts Professions serves as NYU’s “school” of music and is a major research and practice center in music technology, music business, music composition, film scoring, songwriting, music performance practices, performing arts therapies, and the performing arts-in-education (music, dance, and drama).
