k95c1675

Tonight the Fresno State Symphony Orchestra Concert will perform a concert titled “Eternally Romantic” at 8 p.m. in the Concert Hall. Thomas Loewenheim will conduct

“This is one of the most creative programs we have put together,” Loewenheim said. “All the pieces deal with love and betrayal and are some of the most passionate pieces for orchestra ever written. The passion coming out of the orchestra performing these works will engage every audience member and leave them in tears.”

The Fresno State Symphony Orchestra is an ensemble comprised of, and open to, Fresno State students from all areas of study. About 65 musicians will perform together tonight.

The orchestra presents four concerts to the public each season, featuring standard as well as some neglected repertoire for symphony orchestra ranging from the Baroque period to the 21st century.

In addition, the orchestra also performs works in collaboration with the Fresno State choirs, features faculty, guests and winners from the annual concerto competition as soloists, and premiers compositions written by students and faculty.

Ticket cost: $15 general, $10 employees and seniors, $5 students. Click here for additional information.
