Symphony Orchestra to hold spring concert

Posted

Lee University’s Symphony Orchestra will present its spring concert on Monday, March 19, at 7:30 p.m. in Lee’s Pangle Hall.
 
Robert Bernhardt, artist-in-residence at Lee, will conduct the program, which will feature the winners of the Lee Student Concerto Competition.
 
“I look forward each spring to presenting the winners of our Concerto Competition, and as in year’s past, we have a wonderful mix of talent and music which should combine for a remarkable and entertaining concert,” said Bernhardt. “Also on the program will be Franz Liszt’s tone poem, ‘Les Preludes,’ and we’ll end the concert with a special encore, which I’ll announce from the stage.”
 
The competition winners will play music by Beethoven, Brahms, Haydn, and Mozart, as well as arias from operas by Donizetti and Carlisle Floyd.
 
Bernhardt joined Lee’s faculty in the spring of 2011. He also serves as Music Director Emeritus and Principal Pops Conductor of the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera, and Principal Pops Conductor of the Louisville (Ky.) Orchestra and Grands Rapids (Mich.) Symphony. He was the music director and conductor for 19 seasons with CSO, and the first to hold the title "Emeritus." He is also a frequent guest conductor for the Boston Pops and Edmonton Symphony Orchestra (of Alberta, Canada).
 
The Symphony Orchestra is an ensemble of select instrumentalists which performs one major concert each semester. Its musicians frequently participate in opera, choral, and other concerts on campus.
 
The concert is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public.
