BYU Symphony Orchestra to perform Copland, Stravinsky

The Brigham Young University Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Eric Hansen will perform Tuesday (Dec. 3) at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall with special guest J. Arden Hopkin, baritone. Admission is free.

The orchestra will perform four pieces, including "An Outdoor Overture" by Copland, "First Essay for Orchestra, op. 12" by Barber and the Suite from "The Firebird" by Stravinsky.

The Symphony Orchestra will also accompany Hopkin, a member of the BYU School of Music voice faculty, on "Sechs Monologue aus Jedermann" by Martin.

The Symphony Orchestra is one of five orchestras on campus; three, including the Symphony Orchestra, are audition groups.

Of the 85 members in the Symphony Orchestra, most are non-music majors. Each member of the orchestra is required to attend a weekly master class and practice with the orchestra for four hours a week.
