Ohio Northern University Symphony to open season
The Ohio Northern University Department of Music presents the ONU Symphony’s season-opening concert, “Destiny and Dvořák,” in the Freed Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday, Oct. 25, at 5 p.m.
Under the direction of ONU music director Travis Jürgens, the program opens with Verdi’s “Overture to La forza del destino (The Force of Destiny)” followed by George Hüe’s “Fantasie for Flute and Orchestra,” which will be performed by Nicole Wells, a senior music performance major from Germantown, Ohio, who won the department’s concerto competition. This concert also features music by Czech composer Antonín Dvořák, including selections from his “Slavonic Dances,” one of which will be conducted by assistant conductor Ryan Briley. After intermission, the Symphony will perform Dvořák’s dramatic and triumphant “Symphony No. 8 in G Major.”
Tickets are $20 for general admission, $15 for seniors, $5 for students, and $10 for ONU faculty and staff.
