Leach Theatre will fill with sound when the University and Community Symphony and Chamber Orchestras at Missouri University of Science and Technology take the stage to perform a myriad of classical pieces.

The groups will perform at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6, in Leach Theatre 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 at S&T.

Tickets are $5 for the general public and free for youth age 18 and younger and S&T students with a valid student I.D. They can be purchased at the door the afternoon of the performance.

The concert will begin with the Chamber Orchestra performing Alexander Von Kreisler’s “Intermezzo.” They will also perform pieces by Mozart and Johann Melchior Molter. The Symphony Orchestra will follow with a Franz Schubert arrangement, “Symphony No. 100” by Joseph Haydn and “Hana’s Day Out” by Dr. Thomas M. Sleeper, a professor of composition and orchestra at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Fla.

“This concert is a great way to begin the season for the S&T orchestras,” says Cesario. “The pieces range from Baroque to contemporary, and we are presenting music from across 260 years.”

For more information about the concert, contact Cesario at cesarior@mst.edu, or call the Missouri S&T performing arts office at 573-341-4185.
