From Sonatas to Soundtracks: UF Orchestra to Play Spring Concert
The University of Findlay Orchestra will present “A Spring Concert” on Sunday, April 30 at 3 p.m. in Winebrenner Theological Seminary’s TLB Auditorium.
The performance will be free, but tickets are required. They can be reserved by calling the Marathon Center for Performing Arts Box Office at 419-423-2787. Tickets will also be available at the door on the day of the concert.
Directed by Thomas Carey, the program of light classics will include “Largo and Allegro from Sonata IV’ by Georg Philipp Telemann, “Themes from Romeo and Juliet” by Tchaikovsky, Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings,” and other orchestral favorites.
Highlights will include Bela Bartok’s Allegro Barbaro, a forceful and rhythmic 20th century classical piece reminiscent of Stravinsky; John Williams’ “A Prayer for Peace” from the Steven Spielberg film “Munich,” recounting the 1972 Olympics tragedy when Israeli athletes were taken hostage and most killed by Palestinian terrorists during a showdown with police; and “Selections from Phantom of the Opera” by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
The University of Findlay Orchestra is comprised of more than 50 students, staff and community string players. It performs twice each year on the UF campus.
