BYU University Orchestra and Strings in concert Dec. 9

The Brigham Young University School of Music presents the University Orchestra and Strings in concert Tuesday (Dec. 9) at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall. The performance is free and the public is welcome to attend.

The concert, conducted by graduate students Burke Sorenson and Dallin Hansen, will feature music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Samuel Barber, Pietro Mascagni, Benjamin Britten, Georges Bizet, George Gershwin, Johann Strauss, Jr. and Dmitri Shostakovich.

"We chose the pieces in coordination with Kory Katseanes, director of crchestras at BYU," Sorenson said. "We wanted to find fun pieces but works that challenge the students and work well together in a program."

The orchestras make up two sections of Music 321R. Most of the performers are non-auditioned and most performers are neither music majors nor minors.

"This is no stuffed-shirt, white-wig gala," Sorenson said. "We have a great time and really play music from the heart. This particular concert has programmed some of the greatest music in the orchestral repertoire."

For more information on the University Orchestra and University Strings concert, contact Kory Katseanes at 422-3331.
