Conducted by Music Director Elizabeth Schulze, the concert will feature Sergei Prokofiev’s “Classical Symphony,” Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 4” and a newly commissioned work, “Merging Pods,” from composer Michael Brown.
In addition to the performance, MSO Executive Director Jonathan Parrish will lead a community discussion, “The Music Industry,” that will provide current and future arts professionals with insight on how to achieve success in the professional arts world. Topics will include examination of the skills, work and rewards involved in arts management, and analysis of the nonprofit organization model. This free event will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 27, at 3 p.m. in Pealer Recital Hall. Registration through the University box office is required.
Concert tickets are $35 for adults; $31.50 for FSU faculty/staff, military and youth under 18; and free for FSU students.
