OSWEGO -- Ludwig van Beethoven's Ninth Symphony serves as the centerpiece for this year's SUNY Oswego Music Department Scholarship Concert. Performances will be at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at the Fulton Alliance Church, and at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, at St. Paul's Catholic Church in Oswego.
The combined talents of the music department's College-Community Orchestra, College Choir and Festival Chorus will be augmented by several area professional instrumentalists and a vocal quartet. Featured soloists include soprano Amanda Carnie, alto Stephanie Nixdorf, tenor Carl Johengen and bass John Moir.
Beethoven's Ninth Symphony is known as the first symphonic composition to add vocal soloists and a chorus in its final movement. The work, also known as "The Choral Symphony," features the well-known melody "Ode to Joy" (otherwise known as "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee").
Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for students and seniors. They are available at the Tyler Hall box office, from chorus members or at the door at the time of performance.
All profits will be contributed to music department scholarship funds that support talented music majors who participate in a wide variety of activities in the department.
Persons with disabilities seeking accommodations to attend this event should contact the SUNY Oswego music department at 312-2130 in advance.
