University Orchestra and Strings in concert March 30

The Brigham Young University School of Music presents University Orchestra and Strings in concert Tuesday, March 30, 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 Dag Wiren, Antonio Vivaldi, George Gershwin, Felix Mendelssohn, Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Claude Debussy and John Williams.

"We chose the pieces in coordination with Kory Katseanes, director of orchestras 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 nonauditioned and most are neither music majors nor minors.

"This is no stuffy-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.
