The Westerville Symphony at Otterbein University will present the first performance of the 2015-2016 Masterworks Series at 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 11, with the Masterworks I concert "Gavin George -- Live on Your Screen!"

The concert, funded by the PNC Arts Alive initiative, will be performed in the Fritsche Theatre in Cowan Hall, 30 S. Grove St., Westerville. General admission tickets are $25; tickets for those over age 65 or 18 and under are $20.

Audience members will be encouraged to have their phones out -- and silenced -- and a live Twitter feed will appear above the orchestra, displaying tweets from audience members around the world watching the performance streamed online.

Featured artist Gavin George is a 12-year-old piano prodigy from Newark, who began formal training at age 3. George was 7 when he made his symphonic debut with the Newark-Granville Symphony, playing the first movement of the Haydn Concerto in D Major. Since then he has performed with numerous orchestras in the United States and in recital series here and abroad.

George's performance of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 1 will be streamed live on the Internet. The symphony invites all people in the concert hall as well as those elsewhere to participate in the live Twitter listening guide. The live stream allows anyone to see and hear the concert.

Concert goers who choose to participate in the live Twitter dialogue will receive choice seating in the "tweet zone." They also will receive a bag of technology specific items.
