The Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra brings “Beethoven Meets the Wild West” to Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 16.
Timothy Muffit, conductor of the Baton Rouge Symphony, will conduct the performance at the theater, 220 E. Thomas St., Hammond.
“It’s not often that audiences have the opportunity to hear three orchestral favorites of this scope in their entirety, and certainly not all in the same program," says Columbia Theatre Director Roy Blackwood of the thematically linked pieces.
Blackwood said the program includes Rossini’s “William Tell Overture,” Copland’s “Corral Nocturne” and “Hoe Down” from Rodeo, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 “Pastoral.”
General admission tickets are $20-$37 and can be purchased at the box office, open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, or by phone at (985) 543-4371. A $10 ticket is available for all students of any school (with school ID) on the day of the show while supplies last. For more information, visit lpomusic.com.
