    KSU Symphony Orchestra
    KSU Symphony Orchestra
    7:30pm
    at Bailey Performance Center

    Virtual RSVP Orchestras Series. The KSU Symphony begins their 2023-2024 season with a program entitled “Tragedy & Triumph.” Brahms’s Tragic Overture opens the first half of the program followed by the Bassoon Concerto by Andrzej Panufnik, featuring guest artist Dr. Jeffrey Lyman, professor of bassoon at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance. A powerful reflection on the tragedy of political violence, Panufnik’s concerto memorializes Father Jerzy Popiełuszko, an anti-communist Polish Catholic priest who was abducted and brutally murdered by Polish secret police in 1984. In contrast, the second half of the program celebrates the triumph of a master composer writing his first symphony. Completed when he was just 18 years old, Camille Saint-Saëns’s Symphony No. 1 is full of joy, youthful optimism, and craftsmanship indicative of his future stature as one of the great French composers of the late-Romantic Era. KSU director of orchestral studies Nathaniel F. Parker conducts the Brahms and Panufnik; guest conductor Dr. Jacob Harrison, director of orchestras at Texas State University, leads the Saint-Saëns.
