Symphony Orchestra on Friday

6:30 p.m. – Pre-concert talk by Dr. Daniil Zavlunov, musicologist | Presser 112
7:30 p.m. – Concert, Anthony Hose, conductor | Lee Chapel

Mozart’s aria Per questa bella mano brings two faculty bass professors to the stage of Lee Chapel: Dr. Chadley Ballantyne sings the solo bass part, and Michael Hill plays the virtuoso solo string bass part. The program opens with Wagner’s stirring Overture to Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, an opera set in the beautiful medieval town in central Germany, and closes with Shostakovich’s fifth symphony, composed in 1937 in Stalin’s Soviet Union and seen by some as an autobiographical work. Learn more at the pre-concert talk by musicology professor Daniil Zavlunov at 6:30 in Presser 112.

Admission is free with Stetson ID; Cultural Credit offered.
