A selection of triumphant and springtime works will be featured when musicians from Trinity Western University perform in Langley on April 11.
Members of the TWU Orchestra will play the Russian Easter Overture by Rimksy-Korsakov and the "Unfinished" Symphony by Schubert. As well, the Concert Band will perform the Second Suite by Gustav Holst and the William Byrd Suite by Gordon Jacob.
"We're playing a lively program, which highlights the talent and calibre of our music students," says Jon Thompson, conductor of the Orchestra. "This program is a fitting way to end another year of study, practice and performance."
The concert will be held at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church in Langley on April 11. A repeat performance will take place at Peace Lutheran Church in Abbotsford on April 12. Both the Concert Band and Orchestra are comprised mostly of TWU music students, although local musicians are included in their ranks.
