BYU Philharmonic to perform English program Feb. 20

The Brigham Young University Philharmonic Orchestra will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 20, in the de Jong Concert Hall in the Harris Fine Arts Center.

Tickets are $9 or $6 with a BYU or student ID. Tickets can be purchased at the Fine Arts Ticket Office, by calling (801) 422-7664 or by visiting artstix.byu.edu.

The British-themed concert will begin with the "English Folk Song Suite," by Ralph Vaughan Williams. This suite includes two marches, “Seventeen Come Sunday” and “Folk Songs from Somerset,” and an intermediary intermezzo called “My Bonny Boy.” The program will then proceed to "Four Sea Interludes" by Benjamin Britten and "Enigma Variations” by Edward Elgar.

The Philharmonic Orchestra, a 95-member group directed by Kory Katseanes, plays compositions from all musical periods, focusing on the romantic period but also including 20th- and 21st-century music. The orchestra performs from 10 to 14 concerts each year. They also tour throughout the western United States and collaborate with the BYU opera, choral and ballet departments.

For more information, contact Kory Katseanes at (801) 422-3331 or by e-mail at kory_katseanes@byu.edu.
