Music Director Robert Lehmann conducts the North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra in its annual Winter Concert Sunday, Feb. 12 at 3 p.m. at the Swampscott High School Auditorium, 200 Essex St.
The program features American soprano Elizabeth Keusch, a New England Conservatory graduate who has gained international acclaim and has performed during her career with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Washington DC Choral Arts Society, to name a few. A lecturer in Music at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Ms. Keusch will sing Bach’s Cantata 51, “Jauchzet Gott,” considered one of Bach’s most popular and enduring solo cantatas.
Composer Franz Shubert’s Symphony No. 9, “The Great”, and Igor Stravinsky’s charming and witty Suite No. 2 for Small Orchestra round out the concert program.
Tickets will be available at the door for $20, $15 for seniors and students, and can be purchased in advance at www.nspo.org.
