WVU SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA CONCERT, conducted by Dr. Mitchell Arnold, Director of Orchestral Activities, 7:30 p.m., Lyell B. Clay Theatre. Ticketed Event. For tickets and information, call 304-293-SHOW. The nationally recognized WVU Symphony Orchestra opens its 2014-2015 season with a unique program that includes a monumental symphony, a work that depicts the sublime beauty of a wintry landscape, and a potpourri of student drinking songs! The concert will begin with Glenn Buhr’s “winter poems,” an iridescent score that captures the timelessness of the breathtaking Canadian winter landscape. Also on the program will be Franz Schubert’s final symphony and one of the greatest over composed—“Symphony in C Major”—known universally as “The Great.” The finale will be Johannes Brahms’ nearly tongue-in-cheek salute to college life—“Academic Festival Overture.” Brahms thanked the University of Bremen for awarding him an honorary doctorate by composing this ingenious potpourri of student drinking songs that concerns the promise of life, comradeship, love, and death.
