Kent State University Orchestra to offer a light and refreshing concert

Second subscription concert

The Kent State University Orchestra presents their second concert of the 2017-2018 season on Sun., Nov. 5 at 3 p.m. in the University Auditorium at Cartwright Hall. Cartwright Hall is at 650 Hilltop Drive in Kent. Free parking available off of Terrace Drive. Advance tickets are available online, in-person and over the phone through the Performing Arts Box Office.

Directed by Dr. Jungho Kim, the Kent State University Orchestra will perform a varied selection of works for both full symphony orchestra and strings alone. First on the program will be Edvard Grieg’s popular “Holberg Suite.” Originally written for solo piano, Grieg later adapted it for string orchestra. Audience members will then be treated to Mozart’s Serenade No. 6 for Orchestra in D major K. 239 subtitled “Serenata notturna.” Concluding the program will be Franz Schubert’s classically-influenced Symphony No. 5 in B-flat major, D. 485. Described as light and unfettered, it is a work which defined Schubert’s distinct voice in the symphonic genre.
