Northwest Symphony Orchestra to perform fall concert Nov. 15

The Northwest Missouri State University Symphony Orchestra will perform its fall concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 15, in the Mary Linn Auditorium at the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts.

The concert is free and open to the public.

The concert will feature soloist Dr. Elizabeth Dunning, horn instructor at Northwest. She will perform Mozart's “Horn Concerto No. 4, K. 495.”

“Mozart composed all or part of six horn concertos,” said John Bell, the Symphony Orchestra’s conductor and artist-in-residence in Northwest’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts. “Only three of them have survived in their full, original forms, and the rest exist in various incomplete states.”

The program also will feature Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Dance of the Tumblers,” “Dusk” by Steven Bryant, Charles Gounod’s “Funeral March of a Marionette” and L’Arlesienne “Suite No. 2” by Georges Bizet.

The Symphony Orchestra is a full orchestra, consisting of woodwinds, brass, percussion and strings. The ensemble is open to all students on campus, regardless of major. Musical selections range from the Baroque to the Modern periods, with a mixture of styles.
