Muse Scholars shine at Hunter Symphony
The Hunter Symphony gave a rousing performance during its spring concert on May 5 with contributions by musicians in the Muse Scholar Program, who played selections by Edvard Grieg, Franz Schubert, Georg Handel and Georges Bizet.
Music major Emily Hopkins (Class of '15) played harp; Music major Maureen Murray (Class of '17) played cello; and English major Gregory Rocco (Class of '16) played tuba. All three Muse Scholars are section principals in the Hunter Symphony.
Music major Robert Bronchard (Class of '16) also appeared as a special guest soloist, performing Grieg's "Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 16." Bronchard is a four-time laureate of The Associated Music Teachers' League (AMTL) competition who has performed in the annual Young Musicians Concert at Carnegie Hall.
