Bluegrass music, a tuba soloist and a romantic symphony are all on the next program for the Marquette Symphony Orchestra.  Principal conductor Octavio Mas-Arocas returns for the MSO's fourth concert of the 2018-19 season.  

The performance features youth concerto competition winner Evan Zegiel, performing Nelson T. Gast's "Under Mountains of Ocean" (a world-premiere tuba concerto).  The MSO will also colalborate with an Ann Arbor-based bluegrass quartet, Westbound Situation.  This event will also be a part of the Winter Roots Festival, a collaboration with the Hiawatha Music Co-op, the MSO, Peter White Public Library, the City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center, and the Beaumier Heritage Center.

A fundraising effort for the Marquette Symphony Orchestra has turned into an annual concert event; the MSO will hold their third annual Chamber Music Collage Concert Saturday, January 12th, 2019 in Marquette.  The concert takes place in NMU's Reynolds Recital Hall with tickets available at the door.

Concertmaster Janis Peterson came to our studios to tell us more:

Janis Peterson is the concertmaster and a performer in the Marquette Symphony Orchestra, and she stopped by our studios to talk about the MSO's Summer Strings Concert.  The Summer Strings are a small ensemble of string players from the MSO that perform in public spaces and spotlight the strings section of the orchestra.
