Prepares for Concert
MAILED: Oct. 26, 1998|
The University Orchestra fall concert is slated for 2 p.m. Nov. 8 in Gantner Concert Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
The concert will follow the group's late October tour in Madison. While in Madison, the Orchestra will be among the featured ensembles at the Wisconsin State Music Conference, where it will perform selections from the upcoming concert.
On the program for the fall concert at UW-Eau Claire are works by Smetana, Toyama and Berlioz. Smetana's "The Moldau" depicts the course of the Moldau River through Eastern Europe until it flows into the Elbe. Toyama's "Rhapsody for Orchestra on Themes from Japanese Folk Tunes" showcases a variety of Japanese folk music from University Orchestra conductor Nobuyoshi Yasuda's native country. After a brief intermission, the Orchestra will finish with French composer Berlioz's "Symphonie Fantastique," which "invites you to his extraordinary visions," Yasuda said.
Tickets for the fall concert are $5 for adults; $4 for seniors, children under 18 and faculty/staff with university ID; or $1.50 for students with university ID. Tickets are available at the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727.
