On Saturday, October 27, the Colby Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Associate Professor of Music Jonathan Hallstrom, will perform its first concert of the fall season. The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Colby’s Lorimer Chapel on the Waterville campus. Part of the 2001-02 Music at Colby concert series, the event is open to the public and free of charge.

The concert program will feature Igor Stravinsky’s suite from the ballet Pulcinella and Anton Dvorák’s Symphony No. 9 (5) “From the New World.” Titled “Lean and Not-So-Lean Musical Cuisines,” the concert contrasts the dry, precise and sardonic style that is a hallmark of Stravinsky’s neoclassical period with the lush and expansive romanticism characteristic of Dvorák’s works.

Maine’s largest college orchestra, the Colby Symphony Orchestra includes student, faculty and community musicians. For information about this year’s schedule of Music at Colby events contact Diane Kadyk at 207-872-3236.
