The Missouri University of Science and Technology University and Community Symphony Orchestra and the Missouri S&T Chamber Orchestra will perform their spring holiday concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 25, in Leach Theater of Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla. The orchestra will be conducted by Dr. Robert J. Cesario, assistant professor of arts, languages and philosophy.
Tickets are $3 for the general public and free for S&T students and youth age 18 and younger. They can be purchased at the door the night of the performance.
In the first half of the program, the Chamber Orchestra will play two lighter pieces, The Black Forest Clock, by Carl Heins and Hopak, by Leon V. Metcalf, on either side of Edvard Grieg’s Ase’s Death, from his Peer Gynt Suite.
“We are featuring our outstanding student clarinetist, former Illinois All-Stater Emily Pasch,” says Cesario. “She will play the Rondo movement from Mozart’s Concerto for Clarinet.”
The Symphony Orchestra will end the concert with Rossini’s William Tell Overture.
The orchestras will perform in an additional concert this spring, at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 2.
