MTSU Symphony and Chamber Orchestras plan two spring concerts

The MTSU Symphony Orchestra and the MTSU Chamber Orchestra will present the first of two free spring concerts at 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26, 2012, in the Hinton Music Hall inside the Wright Music Building on the MTSU campus.

The second concert is scheduled for 4 p.m. Sunday, April 22.

The Feb. 26 performance will feature Mozart’s “Flute Concerto No. 2” with soloist Kallie Rogers, a Master of Arts student in flute performance at MTSU.

The MTSU Symphony Orchestra also will perform the first and third movements of Mahler’s “Symphony No. 5.”

“This is a powerful and moving work,” said Dr. Carol Nies, associate professor of music at MTSU and director of the groups, who added that the “light and sparkling” first movement of Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 1” also will be a highlight of the Feb. 26 concert.

Both concerts are free and open to the public.
