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.
Along with Mr. MacLean’s piece, Ms. Small will accompany the orchestra for “Concertino for Flute and Orchestra, op. 8” by Otar Gordeli. The final piece of the night will be Gustav Holst’s “The Planets,” which is a seven-movement orchestral suite.
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. She currently teaches at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and Southern Adventist University.
