The Missouri University of Science and Technology performing arts department invites Rolla residents and S&T students, faculty and staff to enjoy “An Evening of Chamber Music” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 6, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
The Chamber Orchestra, Brass Choir, Woodwind Quintet and String Quartet will perform a variety of music across multiple genres.
The Woodwind Quintet will open the performance with “Wind Quintet in E-flat” by Anton Reicha. The String Quartet will continue the performance with “Fantasia on a Theme from Thailand” by Richard Meyer. Then, the Brass Choir will perform “Adagio for Strings” by Samuel Barber. The Chamber Orchestra will conclude the performance with “Cutlass Isle” by Missouri composer Jeremy Schwinger, and “Finale from the Water Music” by G.F. Handel.
“This concert is an opportunity for the students and community members of our program to come together playing works in a more intimate setting, giving emphasis to individual players and small groups,” says Dr. Robert J. Cesario, assistant professor of arts, languages and philosophy and conductor of the orchestra.
Tickets are $5 for the general public and free for Missouri S&T students, faculty and staff with a valid I.D. and youth age 18 and younger. They can be purchased at the door the night of the performance.
