University Symphony Orchestra Concert Sept. 23 & 24

September 21, 2010

The University Symphony Orchestra will explore the depth of three musical geniuses -- Brahms, Elgar, and American composer Samuel Barber -- in their concerts on Thursday, Sept. 23 and Friday, Sept. 24. Brahm's sunny 'Symphony No. 2' will be included, featuring the brilliant playing of music faculty member Barbara Thiem.

Wes Kenney — named Outstanding Teacher in 2009 by the Colorado American String Teachers Association — will conduct the University Symphony Orchestra's performances on Sept. 23 and 24.

Sept. 23 and 24
7:30 p.m. each night
Griffin Concert Hall
University Center for the Arts

Brahms’ crowd-pleasing, delightfully sunny Symphony No. 2, combined with the brilliant playing of Ms. Barbara Thiem on Elgar’s Concerto for Cello, and a nod to American composer Samuel Barber on the occasion of his 100th anniversary, create a very special evening.

Brahms is a great challenge, requiring a high-level of precision and deep passion to bring the German master to life. 

“What a great opportunity for our students to explore the depth of three musical geniuses,” said Maestro Wes Kenney.
