The program will begin with Joseph Haydn's Symphony #31 in D Major, nicknamed the "Hornsignal" because of the unusual scoring for four horns, and the extremely virtuosic writing for those instruments. It is also unusual in that the last movement is a theme and variations which include extended, and elaborate solos for violin, cello flute and bass. Also on the program will be Alexander Glazunov's Concerto for Saxophone in Eb Major, featuring Nathan Pollard, a Dana, Ind. senior who is a winner of the 2006 Paul W. Hagan Concerto/Aria Auditions. The program will conclude with Academic Festival Overture by Johannes Brahms, which was written after Brahms was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Bremen.
The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call 237-2771.
