USO presents Viennese Masters in free concert

Oct. 26, 2006

KALAMAZOO--The University Symphony Orchestra presents its second concert of the season Sunday, Nov. 5, at 3 p.m. in the Dalton Center Recital Hall at Western Michigan University. The concert is open to the public free of charge.

The concert, "Viennese Masters," will feature works of Mozart and Schubert. Hornist Lin Foulk, assistant professor of music, will be the featured soloist on the "Concerto No. 4 in E-Flat Major for Horn and Orchestra" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The program will also include the Overture to "Rosamunde" by Franz Peter Schubert, which is the only surviving music of the operaic melodrama "The Magic Harp." The concert will conclude with the majestic "'Prague' Symphony No. 38 in D Major," K. 504, by Mozart. Of the many masterworks Mozart wrote, this symphony is one of the finest examples of his genius.

The University Symphony Orchestra is directed and conducted by Bruce Uchimura, professor of music.
