University Symphony to perform April 17

April 4, 2014

The Indiana State University Symphony Orchestra will present a concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 17 in Tilson Auditorium.

Conductor William Davis will start the program with the "Suite in D Major" from George Frideric Handel's "Water Music." This set of orchestral suites was requested by King George I for an outdoor concert on the Thames River. It was premiered in July, 1717 on a group of barges and boats.

Mozart's "Symphony #36," a work written by the composer in four days, will follow. The final two works on the concert will be Samuel Barber's "First Essay" and Hector Berlioz's "Roman Carnival Overture."

The concert is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact the School of Music at 812-237-2771.
