Performances of any kind tend to have a photogenic air around them. Orchestral performances are no different. Take the upcoming University Orchestra Family Concert, for example.
Tuesday, March 3 will see Stony Brook University orchestra members performing a family-friendly show at the Staller Center. The scores to be played range from sweeping classics like “Jupiter” composed by Gustav Holst to highlights from “Frozen”, the popular Disney film. Joining the the Stony Brook Orchestra will be the 2014 Pre-College Concerto Competition winner Yasmine Kocan.
Capturing in photographs various scenes like the audience gathering in their seats, the orchestra pumping out their scores, and the performers receiving applause would truly bring a news story to life. Close, tight shots of the conductor leading the music and pictures of the orchestra hard at work to produce their harmonies would illustrate the passion and effort that everyone would pour into each number.
