The Marquette Symphony Orchestra's October 26 concert features a side-by-side performance with Marquette Senior High School students.

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.
