Campus Symphony Fall Concert

“Homage to the Past” is the title of the Campus Symphony Fall Concert which will be performed Wednesday, Nov. 8, at Libby Gardner Concert Hall. The show will begin at 7:30 pm and is free for University of Utah Students with their UID. General admission tickets are $12.50. The Campus Orchestra is not limited to music majors, and it features musicians from all over the university.

“The one thing that binds us together is a love of music,” said Robert Baldwin, director of orchestral activities. “The fall concert will be a homage to how composers are inspired by works from the past.”

“This concert will feature composers whose music continues to inspire all who listen,” added Anna Oldroyd, U College of Fine Arts communication specialist.

“Reformation Symphony” by Felix Mendelssohn will be the featured piece, written to honor the Presentation of the Augsburg Confession on its 300th anniversary.
