CES at FSU Presents the Maryland Symphony Orchestra in “Immortal Mozart + Schubert’s Fifth Symphony”
CES at Frostburg State University will once again present the award-winning Maryland Symphony Orchestra in its fall concert, “Immortal Mozart + Schubert’s Fifth Symphony,” on Sunday, Nov. 11, at 3 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center.
Under the skilled leadership of conductor and musical director Elizabeth Schulze, MSO’s performance will feature three luminous concerto, choral and orchestral works. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s timeless “Krönungsmesse, Mass No. 15 in C Major” will feature the FSU University Chorale and the Chamber Singers. The playful lyricism of Mozart’s “Bassoon Concerto in B-flat Major, K. 191” will showcase soloist Erich Heckscher, principal bassoon with MSO and the National Philharmonic. Rounding out the program is Franz Schubert’s sparkling “Symphony No. 5 in B-flat Major.”
Ticket holders are invited to attend Prélude, a free pre-show lecture at 2 p.m. with Schulze, who will discuss the musical works to be performed.
Performance tickets are $35 for adults and $15 for youth under 18. Member, military and group discount rates are also available.
