The Westminster College Symphony Orchestra will host a winter concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 24 in Orr Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.

Along with student and community performers, the concert will feature Dr. Robert Knop, Associate Professor Physics, on the viola and adjunct music faculty Robin M. Hasenpflug on the cello.

The concert will feature Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral,” and American composer Aaron Copeland’sFanfare for the Common Man”.

 “I'm terrifically excited to have the Westminster Symphony Orchestra present these two pillars of orchestral literature,” says Dr. Melinda Perttu, Assistant Professor of Music at Westminster College. “The students are performing at a very high level of musicianship. From the power of Copeland's "Fanfare to the Common Man" to the sweetness found in Beethoven's Sixth, it's going to be an exhilarating concert!”
