The University of Findlay Orchestra will present “A Spring Concert” on Sunday, April 24 at 3 p.m. in Winebrenner Theological Seminary’s TLB Auditorium.
Directed by Thomas Carey, the program of light classics will include Ravel’s “Bolero, Swan Lake” from Act II of the ballet by Tschaikovsky; “Fugue” from String Quartet No. 1 by Charles Ives; and other orchestral favorites.
A highlight of the concert will be a setting for strings of Samuel Barber’s “Sure on this Shining Night,” featuring violinist Coleton Cook, freshman equestrian studies/English major from Merritt Island, Florida; and Caroline Billings, a senior animal science/pre-veterinary major from Glen Ellyn, Illinois, on viola.
The University of Findlay Orchestra is comprised of more than 60 students, staff and community string players, and performs twice each year on the University of Findlay campus. Performances are free, but tickets are required. They can be reserved by calling the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts Box Office at 419-423-2787. Tickets will also be available at the door on the day of the concert.
