College-Community Orchestra to offer free concert May 4

SUNY Oswego’s College-Community Orchestra will perform a free concert at 6 p.m. Sunday, May 4, in Sheldon Hall ballroom. The orchestra’s director, Juan F. La Manna of the college’s music department, will conduct.

“Pieces performed will include Purcell’s delightful suite from the opera ‘The Fairy Queen,’ romantic and expressive excerpts from the opera “l’Arlesienne’ by French composer Bizet, and the powerful ‘Lullaby and Finale’ from Stravinsky’s ‘The Firebird’ ballet,” La Manna said. “Beethoven’s joyous, humorous and raucous ‘Symphony No. 8’ will close the program.”

Donations to benefit the SUNY Oswego music department’s scholarship fund will be accepted.
