Enjoy orchestra music from the comfort of your living room, thanks to Duquesne's Mary Pappert School of Music.

Each Friday night from now through May, the School of Music will release a previously recorded concert by student or faculty ensembles at 7:30 p.m. on its YouTube channel. The series-titled A Little Friday Night Music-is a play on Mozart's famous Eine kleine Nachtmusik (A Little Night Music).

To kick off the series, the School of Music will release a video from the Jan. 12 Best of the Bluff concert, featuring Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO) members and Duquesne music faculty.

The concert will include a performance of French composer Camille Saint-Sans' The Carnival of the Animals, featuring Duquesne President Ken Gormley as narrator. Daniel Meyer, director of orchestral activities in the Mary Pappert School of Music, conducts.

The Best of the Bluff series is a two-year chamber music series featuring favorite musical works from previous years' series resulting from audience polls.
