The Westminster College Symphony Orchestra will host a winter concert on Feb. 22 at 7:30 p.m. in Orr Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.

Along with student and community performers, the concert will feature associate professor of physics Dr. Robert Knop on the viola and adjunct music faculty Justin Bendel on the bass.

The symphony orchestra will play Serenade No. 1 by composer Johannes Brahms.

Serenade No. 1 celebrates Brahms’s love of nature. The serenade was originally written as a three-movement octet. Great violist and Brahm's good friends Joseph Joachim conducted the premiere, which was a big success. The final version was premiered upon the command of King George of Hanover, again under Joachim’s baton.
