Tickets are on sale for the LSU Symphony Orchestra’s concert, “The Russian Tradition,” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 4, in the LSU Union Theater, Raphael Semmes Drive.
As a major performing ensemble in the LSU School of Music, lead by conductor Carlos Riazuelo, the orchestra’s repertoire encompasses established orchestral masterworks from the Baroque to the 20th century, along with contemporary composer pieces. This concert will focus on “The Russian Tradition” with Alexander Glazionov’s “Concerto for Saxophone and Orchestra” and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Symphony No 6, Pathetique.”
Each academic year, the symphony orchestra performs an average of five concerts, and it collaborates with distinguished guest artists, as well as LSU School of Music faculty soloists on a regular basis. Its membership of some 90 players represents some of LSU’s most talented student musicians who are from 25 states and 15 foreign countries.
