Maryland Symphony Orchestra, Featuring Guest Artists Time for Three, to Perform Variety of Music at FSU
The Cultural Events Series at Frostburg State University will present the always-popular Maryland Symphony Orchestra when it returns to the FSU Performing Arts Center Pealer Recital Hall on Friday, Oct. 11, at 8 p.m.
Under the leadership of musical director Elizabeth Schulze, this year’s MSO concert features the youthful energy of special guest artists, Time for Three. Violinists Zachary De Pue and Nicolas Kendall, along with Ranaan Meyer on double bass, offer Americana music with elements of gypsy, classical, bluegrass, country and jazz. This genre-twisting strings ensemble has been described as “the world’s first classically trained garage band.” National Public Radio praised their “staggering technique” and “freewheeling genre-crossing,” and stated, “It’s hard not to be swept up in the force of their contagious energy.”
The program offers a balance of music from composers old and new. Audiences will enjoy Johann Sebastian Bach’s celebrated “Double Violin Concerto,” Samuel Barber’s “The School for Scandal” and David Ludwig’s “Fanfare for Sam,” as well as imaginative arrangements and medleys from more contemporary artists like Leonard Cohen, Bon Iver and Mumford & Sons.
Tickets are $34 for adults and $28.90 for youth under 17. Corporate and group discount rates are also available.
