MIT Summer Philharmonic Orchestra
August 3, 2012
Now in its 17th season, the MIT Summer Philharmonic Orchestra (MITSPO) has been the preeminent summer community orchestra for nearly two decades. Made up of top musicians of the MIT community and the general Greater Boston area, MITSPO hosts a single concert event every summer.
This year's program is inspired by the poetry of Lord Byron:
Tchaikovsky, Manfred Symphony
MITSPO is conducted by George Ogata who founded the orchestra in 1995. Mr. Ogata has been on the faculty at the Longy School of Music of Bard College since 1996 as Conductor of the Longy Youth Chamber Orchestra, the senior youth orchestra program. He has led the youth orchestra on tour to Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, France, and Spain.
