NEW HAVEN -  New Haven Public Schools music educator Harriett Alfred will sing the national anthem to open the New Haven Symphony’s 120th anniversary season at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 3 at Woolsey Hall, according to a release.
The evening’s concert will be, Tchaikovsky Triumphant, and features Tchaikovsky’s thrilling Symphony No. 5, Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto performed by violinist Chad Hoopes, 19, and Theofanidis’s Rex Tremendae Majestatis performed by the NHSO and Thomas Murray on Woolsey Hall’s organ, the release said.
