Northwest Symphony Orchestra to perform Feb. 22

MARYVILLE, Mo. - Get toasty with the Northwest Missouri State University Symphony Orchestra as it serves up a pipin'-hot farrago of sizzlin' symphonic repertoire.

The Symphony Orchestra presents "Hot-Blooded Music on a Cold Winter's Night," at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 22, in the Charles Johnson Theater at the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building. Admission is free.

The orchestra's zesty winter concert crackles with such fireballs as Handel's ebullient Overture from "Music for the Royal Fireworks," Gershwin's spicy rhumba-rollin' "Cuban Overture," Manuel de Falla's "Danza del Fuego (Ritual Fire Dance)," Shostakovich's prankish Polka from "The Golden Age" ballet and Modest Mussorgsky's "Love Music" from the opera "Boris Godunov."

The orchestra is led by first-year conductor Monty Carter, an adjunct professor in Northwest's Department of Music. Carter also is a professional violinist and violist.
