EAU CLAIRE — The University Symphony Orchestra will present its spring concert at 2 p.m. April 22 in Gantner Concert Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

The Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Nobuyoshi Yasuda, associate professor of music, will open with "Sensemayá" by Silvestre Revueltas. The piece follows the structure of a poem by Nicolás Guillén, which reenacts a magical snake rite.

Concerto for Cello and Orchestra by William Walton will follow, featuring Dr. Tulio Rondón, assistant professor of music, on cello. The concert will continue with "Nor Height, Nor Depth" by Dr. Ethan Wickman, assistant professor of composition and theory.

The evening will close with "Enigma Variations" by Edward Elgar. The piece, which includes 14 variations, is still one of the most popular works in classical repertoire.

Tickets, available online and at the University Service Center, 715-836-3727 or 800-949-UWEC, are $6 for the public; $4 for those 62 and older, 17 and younger, and faculty and staff with a university ID; and $1.50 for students with a university ID.
