The Binghamton University Symphony Orchestra will open its final season under the long-time direction of Professor Timothy Perry with “Great Music for Great Cities” at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20 in Osterhout Concert Theater at Binghamton University. The program celebrates in sound the life of four of the world’s greatest cities, New York, Paris, London and Rome, with music by Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, Edward Elgar and Ottorino Respighi. Dr. Perry joins us to talk about the program and about the orchestra, which is mainly made up of non-music majors.
