On Sunday, Oct. 7 at 3 p.m. in Kimball Recital Hall, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Glenn Korff School of Music's Symphony Orchestra will present the opening concert of its 2018-2019 season.
Under the direction of Dr. Tyler Goodrich White, the program will open with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s beloved Symphony No. 40 in G minor and will close with Dmitri Shostakovich’s powerful Symphony No. 5 in D minor, a work often hailed as the greatest symphony of the last 100 years. Rounding out the program is the "Concerto for Trombone and Orchestra" by Danish composer Launy Grondahl, featuring Nebraska professor Scott Anderson as soloist.
The Symphony Orchestra presents approximately six concert programs each year and regularly tours in the region. The orchestra's repertoire includes major symphonic works of the 18th through 21st centuries, concertos with both faculty and student soloists, choral-orchestral masterworks (in collaboration with Glenn Korff School of Music choral ensembles) and fully staged operas and musicals.
Tickets are available at Kimball Recital Hall the night of the event. General admission is $5, students and seniors (62 and over) $3.
