In honor of the September 18, 2014 USC Thornton Symphony performance, presented by USC Visions and Voices, we’ve uncovered this snapshot of the ensemble from 1976! The USC Thornton Symphony is one of the school’s oldest performance ensembles, and has produced some of the finest orchestral musicians in the world.
The September 18 performance kicks off the USC Thornton Fall 2014 concert season. Carl St.Clair, artistic leader of the USC Thornton orchestras, leads the ensemble in an evening of the music of Dimitri Shostakovich. The concert includes an interlude from Shostakovich’s Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk as well as his Tenth Symphony.
