UW-Eau Claire Symphony Orchestra
Concert Set for Nov. 4 

MAILED: Oct. 26, 2001

         EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire music and theatre arts department will present a University Symphony Orchestra Concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4, in Gantner Concert Hall of the Fine Arts Center.
         Assistant professor of music and theatre arts Nobuyoshi Yasuda will conduct the 60-member student ensemble.
         The ensemble will perform four works beginning with Carl Maria von Weber's Overture to “Der Freischutz” (The Free-Shooter), which was written in 1820 and set a tone for the blending of true romance, rustic comedy and the occult that was to dominate the era through the 1860s.
         Fairy tales will come to life in the next two works taken from Engelbert Humperdinck’s opera “Hansel and Gretel.” “Children’s Prayer” and “Dream Pantomime” are two of Humperdink's most famous works. Sopranos Kathryn Proctor-Duax and Elizabeth Hellman will be featured.
         Following intermission, one final work, “Scheherazad,” Op. 35, by Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov will be performed.
         Tickets, available at the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727, are $5 for adults; $4 for those age 62 and older, children 17 and younger, and faculty or staff with a university ID; or $1.50 for students with a university ID.
