NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. –  The Westminster College Symphony Orchestra will present its winter concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28, in the Will W. Orr Auditorium on Westminster’s campus.

Stesiak will perform Édouard Lalo’s Cello Concerto, while Kardasz will perform Carl Maria von Weber’s “Andante and Hungarian Rondo” on bassoon.
