UCO Symphony Orchestra To Present Winter Concert

Feb. 10, 2011symphony

The University of Central Oklahoma's Symphony Orchestra will present its winter concert at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 15 in Mitchell Hall Theater.            

The concert will include selections from Georg Telemann's "Don Quixote Suite," William Walton's "Two Pieces from Henry V," Edvard Grieg's "Wedding Day at Troldhaugen" as well as Mozart's "Symphony # 41 (Jupiter)."            

"Mozart is one of my favorite composers," said Ralph Morris, Ph.D., director of the symphony orchestra.            

"The intricacy and the transparency of the ‘Jupiter Symphony' makes it a difficult work to perform well. The students in the orchestra are working very hard, and I am looking forward to performing it with them."            

The concert will feature the orchestra's graduate assistant, Curtis Hansen, as a guest conductor. He will be conducting two string pieces from music William Walton wrote for the film version of Shakespeare's Henry V.            

Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for Central faculty and staff and senior
 citizens, $4 for Central students and will be available in advance or at the door. For tickets, call (405) 974-3375.
