Winter Air concert

Manchester Symphony Orchestra offers ‘Winter Air’ Nov. 16

The Manchester Symphony Orchestra will present its winter concert, “Winter Air,” at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 16. in Cordier Auditorium on the North Manchester campus.

A pre-concert talk will begin at 7 p.m.

The orchestra is conducted this semester by Robert Lynn, an adjunct music professor at the University. The ensemble is a mix of students, faculty members, community members and professionals. This concert will again only have the orchestra strings instead of the usual full orchestra due to COVID-19. 

This concert will include “Winter” from The Four Seasons by Vivaldi, featuring concertmaster Elizabeth Smith as the violin soloist, as well as the Don Quixote Suite by Telemann and the Vaughan Williams Concerto Grosso for String Orchestra.

Tickets are $15 general admission; free for MU students, faculty and staff, as well as anyone age 18 and younger. Masks and social distancing are required.
