Plainfield Symphony wraps up 97th season with Ravel


Maurice Ravel. Would you have guessed he was a
perfectionist -- and probably gay?


The Plainfield Symphony's music director Charles Prince leads the orchestra in closing out its 97th season this Saturday (April 29) with a program focused on French composer Maurice Ravel.

Three Ravel masterpieces are on the menu -- the 'Daphnis and Chloe Suite No. 2', 'le Tombeau de Couperin' (his homage to that famed Baroque composer), and the mesmerizing 'Bolero'.

Helen Shen, YPCNJ gold medal winner, rounds out the program with a performance of Chopin's 'Piano Concerto No. 2 in f minor'.

Immediately following the concert, Peter and Libby Price will be honored at the Conductor's Circle after party at the home of Vickie White and Michel McCarthy at 1440 Prospect Avenue.  Tickets to the after party are $50/person, payable at the door.

The concert is a 7:00 PM at Crescent Avenue Presbyterian Church, East 7th Street and Watchung Avenue. Tickets are $25/person at the door. Parking in the church lot on First Place, on the street, or in the Swain Galleries lot.
