The Missouri University of Science and Technology University and Community Symphony Orchestra and the Missouri S&T Chamber Orchestra will perform in a concert on the S&T campus this May.
The concert will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 3, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla. Dr. Robert Cesario, assistant professor of arts, languages, and philosophy, will conduct the orchestras.
The Chamber Orchestra will open the concert with “Concerto for Solo Trumpet, Horns, Strings and Harpsichord” by Leopold Mozart. The orchestra will also perform “Suite for String Orchestra” by Leos Janacek.
The Symphony Orchestra will take the stage with “Handel in the Strand (Clog Dance)” by Percy Aldridge Grainger and “Gymnopedies Nos. 1 and 3” by Erik Satie. The orchestra will also perform “Symphony No. 1 in G Minor” by Vasily Kalinnikov.
“The orchestras are presenting a varied and very challenging program for their last concert of the semester,” Cesario says. “This is an eclectic program presenting music from the 18th through the early 21st centuries.
