UNH NHASTA Fall Orchestra Festival Concert
The UNH Symphony Orchestra is again pleased to present the UNH Fall Orchestra Festival, in collaboration with the New Hampshire chapter of the American String Teacher's Association. On Saturday, October 12th, nearly 80 high school string players will assemble in the Paul Creative Arts Center for a day of rehearsals and performances led by UNH faculty and students. The high school students will form two orchestras, performing a wide variety of repertoire ranging from music from Bizet's Carmen, to Mozart's Symphony No. 41, and Manuel de Falla's Ritual Fire Dance. A performance will be given that evening at 7:00 pm in the Johnson Theater that will feature the student orchestras as well as the UNH Symphony orchestra performing Borodin's exciting Polovetsian Dances.
