The Wooster Symphony Orchestra will perform Sat., Nov. 7, 8:15 p.m. and Sun., Nov. 8, 4:00 p.m. at Gault Recital Hall, Scheide Music Center on the campus of The College of Wooster.
Under the direction of Jeffrey Lindberg, conductor and professor of music, the Wooster Symphony will perform Brahms’ Symphony No. 3 in F Major, and Mozart’s Concerto No. 4 for Violin and Orchestra. Returning to campus is violin virtuoso Lin He, who has performed throughout China and the United States. He, who served as concertmaster with the Wooster Symphony and has performed on multiple occasions in Wooster, received his doctorate from the Eastman School of Music and is currently assistant professor of violin at the Louisiana State University School of Music and associate concertmaster of the Baton Rouge Symphony.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed five violin concertos in 1775 while at the Salzburg Court, where he was employed as a court musician from 1773-1777. Wooster audiences will hear his fourth concerto, which has become a standard in the repertory and continues to delight.
Also to be performed is the premiere of Blood Memories, by Paul Winchester, a junior music major at The College of Wooster. Inspired by the movie, Underworld, Winchester originally conceived the composition as the middle movement of a sonata for alto saxophone and piano. Blood Memories was orchestrated by Mark Hillegass, a senior music education major at the College.
The concert will be held at the College’s McGaw Chapel, 340 E. University Street. Tickets are $5 (free for students) and are available at The Wooster Book Company, Buehler’s (Milltown and Towne Market), the Lowry Center Wilson Bookstore on campus, and at the door of the concert. C.O.W. students may sign up for complimentary tickets at the Lowry Center Desk, and faculty and staff may obtain complimentary tickets at the Lowry Center Wilson Bookstore. Tickets can also be ordered from the Scheide Music Center Office, 330-263-2419.
