BGSU Philharmonia gives final fall concert
The Bowling Green Philharmonia will present its final concert of the fall season at 8 p.m. Dec. 1 in Kobacker Hall of the Moore Musical Arts Center. Dr. Emily Freeman Brown, director of orchestral activities, will conduct the performance, which will include works by Samuel Adler, Samuel Barber and Hector Berlioz.

“Centennial: A Celebration for Symphony Orchestral” by Adler, was commissioned by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in celebration of its 100th anniversary. Barber’s “Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, Op. 14” will feature violn soloist Dr. Penny Thompson Kruse. Kruse, music performance studies, trained at Northwestern and Yale universities and earned a doctorate from the Conservatory of Music at the University of Missouri at Kansas City.

The program will conclude with “Symphonie Fantastique Op. 14” by Berlioz. “Symphonie Fantastique” is actually the work’s subtitle. “An Episode in the Life of an Artist” is its proper name. It is one of the most important and representative pieces of the early Romantic period, and is still very popular with concert audiences worldwide.

Advance tickets for the event are $10 for adults and $7 for senior citizens, with a $3 increase the day of the performance. The special student rate is $5 for students who bring a canned good. Tickets can be purchased at the center box office weekdays from noon to 6 p.m. or by calling 2-8171.
