The MSO is dedicated to furthering music education opportunities, so the orchestra invited the MSHS Symphony Orchestra and Wind Ensemble for a side-by-side performance for the first time. The students will join the MSO for Finlandia by Sibelius and Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis. The MSO will also play Franck’s Symphony in D minor. The concert is Saturday, Oct. 26 at 7:30 p.m. at Kaufman Auditorium.
Octavio Más-Arocas, the MSO’s principal conductor, will lead the combined ensembles. The MSHS Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Eric Marta, and the MSHS Wind Ensemble is conducted by Matt Ludwig. Both teachers are members of the MSO.
Tickets are on sale at tickets.nmu.edu at at NMU Ticket Outlets, or by inquiries at the door on concert night. The MSO's remaining concerts this season are Dec. 14, Feb. 22 and April 18. Visit MarquetteSymphony.org for more details.
