The Indiana State University Symphony Orchestra will present a concert Thursday, April 12, at 7:30 p.m. in Tilson Auditorium.

Janelle Huber, a senior education major from Brazil, will be featured on Vivaldi's "Flute Concerto in D Major." The orchestra, under the direction of conductor William Davis, associate professor of music, will then turn to the most famous of all symphonies, "Symphony No. 5" by Beethoven.

The concert will conclude with two excerpts from Wagner's opera "Lohengrin." The prelude is a heavenly descent from high strings to a rich orchestration of several themes at once. It will be followed immediately by the Introduction to the third act, which is a prime example of a regal Wagnerian theme for full brass.

Admission to the event is free and attendance by campus and community members is encouraged. For more information, contact the School of Music at 812-237-2771.
