The Lincoln University welcomes the final of two free Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia performances at its International Cultural Center, Tuesday, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m., a university news release said.
The concert, which features conductor Dirk Brossé and Harpist Catherine Michel, includes Rameau’s Suite For Strings, a world premiere harp concerto from award-winning composer Michel Legrand, and Hadyn’s Symphony No. 104 in D major (“London”), the release said.
