The Honorable Shirley Ann Jackson, Ph.D., invites you to attend a holiday concert featuring the Rensselaer Orchestra, Concert Choir, RPI Players, and soprano Kimberley Dolanski Osburn.
The concert will be held on Sunday, December 10, at 3:00 pm in the EMPAC Concert Hall.
The President’s Annual Holiday Concert 2017 will present a semi-staged version of Ibsen’s/Grieg’s Peer Gynt. Drawing on the style of semi-staged orchestral-dramatic performance developed by New York production group Giants Are Small, the performance will use selections from Grieg’s entire Incidental Music to Ibsen’s play, and select scenes from the Ibsen that appropriately cut down the narrative while maintaining dramatic continuity. This production will be a significant step in linking student activities, both accredited course work and club activity, with the performance capabilities of EMPAC.
