Season 94 Finale: Songs of Comfort!

May 6 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$38 – $58

Join us for our Season 94 finale: Songs of Comfort! May 6th at The Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center
Doors: 6:45pm, Performance: 7:30pm
For our season finale, we pair Brahms’ profound musical exploration of comfort, with something completely new: a commission by composer Tommy Dougherty, whose piece Blue Steel Cranes was premiered as part of our 20th Remembrance of 9/11 in 2021. Dougherty will incorporate sounds recorded by YOU of your favorite sounds of the region, as he creates a brand-new piece for the JSO depicting and celebrating the industry, agriculture, and natural beauty of our region’s hometowns.

The Johnstown Symphony Chorus, directed by Jeffrey L. Webb, partners with the choral programs of Indiana University of Pennsylvania and the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown to perform the Brahms Requiem, considered by many to be the pinnacle of choral-orchestral music. Grammy-winning soprano Sarah Brailey sings Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915, and internationally-acclaimed baritone Tyler Duncan joins as soloist for the Brahms.

Join Music Director James Blachly for a pre-concert talk beginning at 6:30pm at the Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center. This informal discussion is free to all ticket holders and is designed to enrich the experience of the performance by “bringing you inside” the music!
