The Southwestern Oklahoma State University Symphony Orchestra will be in concert this Tuesday, April 20, on the Weatherford campus.

The 8:15 p.m. concert will be in the Fine Arts Center lobby. The public is invited and admission is free.

The orchestra is conducted by Dr. Robert Chambers.  The Southwest Youth Strings will join the ensemble, performing Telemann's Suite in A-minor and conducted by faculty member JoAnne Rogers.  The second selection, a spirited overture, is The Russian Sailors' Dance by Gliere.

Three hallmark concerti will be performed by outstanding soloists from the orchestra. Graduate student Diane Pihulic of Lawton will perform Mozart's Flute Concerto in G-major. Graduate assistant Pam Almack will expressively perform Elegie by Gabriel Faure. The concert will conclude with a brilliant rendition of Mendessohn's Violin Concerto, featuring the symphony's concert master, Jaymes Kirksey, senior music major from Oklahoma City.
