Southern Adventist University's Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Laurie Redmer Minner, will present a free concert with flutist Heather Small on Sunday, March 23, at 7:30 p.m. in the Collegedale Church of Seventh-day Adventists.  

The performance features "The Hymn Tune Fantasy" a piece by John T. MacLean that the symphony orchestra premiered during the composer’s festival held at UTC this past February.

Ms. Small made her international performing debut in Jönköping, Sweden, and has performed at the National Flute Association Conference in Kansas City on a program of newly published music. An avid chamber musician, she has performed with The West Texas Winds, the Lydian Ensemble, and the Small-Yang Duo.
