SSO Youth and Collegiate Orchestra Concert April 15
SALISBURY, MD---Young community members from Easton, MD, to the Eastern Shore of Virginia join Salisbury University students Thursday, April 15, for the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra (SSO) Affiliated Youth and Collegiate Symphony Orchestra concert starting 7:30 p.m. in the Great Hall of Holloway Hall.
Titled “From Bach to Baggins (Frodo, That Is),” the concert features music from the popular movie trilogy with Howard Shore’s The Lord of the Rings Medley. Other works include Poet and Peasant Overture by Franz von Suppe, Fandango and Alborada by Nicolas Rimsky-Korsakov, Eine Kleine Nachtmusick by Mozart, Hillpoint Fantasy by Jared Spears, Andalucia Suite by Ernesto Lecuona, Bugler’s Holiday by Leroy Anderson and a chorale by Bach.
Dr. Charles F. Smith Jr. is guest conductor. Orchestra members range in age from 10 to 21. Some 51 of the orchestra’s 55 instrumentalists are home-schooled students and students from local private, middle and high schools as well as SU. The remaining four are community volunteer members of the SSO.
The youth symphony “is a bridge between the local school orchestras and the SSO,” Smith said.
Admission is $5 per person at the door. Seating is limited. For more information call 410-548-5587 or visit the SU Web site at www.salisbury.edu.
