Composer-vocalist Lisa Bielawa makes her orchestral conducting debut with the Mannes String Orchestra in a presentation by the Philip Glass Institute at The College of Performing Arts at The New School, entitled The Sonic World of the String Orchestra. As the Composer-in-Residence and Chief Curator of the Philip Glass Institute, Lisa Bielawa crafted this program which includes Philip Glass' Symphony No. 3 and her own work, The Trojan Women. The concert also features world premieres of the string orchestra versions of three works: two arias from Bielawa's made-for-TV and online opera Vireo, sung by Rowen Sabala; Jon Gibson's Chorales for Relative Calm; and David T. Little's 1986.
