Friends and Music Lovers,
34 consecutive seasons, the Albert Einstein Symphony Orchestra has found it
difficult to enlist new, experienced string players. As a result, we are
taking a year off to "regroup" and step up our recruitment
efforts without the pressure of upcoming performances. We hope that this is
only a temporary hiatus and that we will be back next year, as we have many
fine concerts already planned.
can help. If you know of any experienced musicians, especially string
players, please let us know and have them contact us.
Albert Einstein Symphony Orchestra
About the orchestra:
The Albert Einstein Symphony Orchestra is composed largely of
students, housestaff and faculty of the Albert
Einstein College of Medicine and its affiliated hospitals, as well as
talented musicians from surrounding communities. We regularly give four
concerts a year, and perform works from the early Baroque through the 20th Century,
from small chamber pieces to larger Romantic symphonies and concertos.
We also have done vocal music, including recent concert performances of
Gilbert and Sullivan's Trial by Jury, Iolanthe,
The Gondoliers, The Mikado, The Yeomen of the Guard, The Pirates of
Penzance, Patience, Ruddigore
and H.M.S. Pinafore.
soloists with the Orchestra have included both local instrumentalists as well
as noted musicians of international reputation.
About the conductor:
Dr. Stephen Moshman is a visiting Associate Professor of
Medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Professor of Clinical
Medicine at New York Medical College,
and a full-time Attending Internist in the Department of Medicine at Westchester Medical Center.
Starting his musical life as a violinist, he developed an interest in
conducting and composition early on, and founded and conducted the University of Rochester Baroque Ensemble while
attending college there. He has also composed a variety of orchestral
and chamber works. The Albert Einstein Symphony Orchestra was organized
by him in 1982.
