Missouri S&T’s University Orchestra will perform music by Tchaikovsky and Mozart during a concert hosted by the S&T arts, languages, and philosophy department on Nov. 6.
The performance will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 6, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, located on the Missouri S&T campus at the corner of 10th and Main streets in Rolla. The University Orchestra is directed by Dr. Kyle Wernke, assistant professor of music.
The program includes Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 2 in C minor and Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K. 466, with guest soloist Lorie Francis.
“Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 2, long referred to as ‘The Little Russian,’ was composed in Ukraine and makes stunning use of several Ukrainian folk songs,” says Wernke. “As events unfold, now is the time to perform this masterful work. The students and I are also thrilled to be performing Mozart’s 20th Piano Concerto with Professor Lorie Francis, who is crafting her own unique musical vision for this extraordinary piece.”
