The Lee University Symphony Orchestra

The Lee University Symphony Orchestra will present its fall concert, conducted by Robert Bernhardt, on Monday at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall.

This concert features three works from three different musical eras and musical languages by Aaron Copland, Ernest Bloch, and Beethoven.

The performance will open with Copland’s “An Outdoor Overture.” Student conductor for the semester, Logan Fox, will conduct this piece.

Bloch’s “Suite Modale” is a four-movement for solo flute and string orchestra. Kristen Holritz, Lee’s flute instructor and principal flute of the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera, will be the soloist.

The evening will conclude with Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 6 in F Major” known as the “Pastoral Symphony.” It is presented as part of the world-wide celebration of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth.

Mr. Bernhardt joined Lee’s School of Music in the fall of 2011, where he currently serves as artist-in-residence. He also serves as music director emeritus and principal pops conductor of the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera and principal pops conductor of the Louisville Orchestra and Grand Rapids Symphony.

The Lee University Symphony Orchestra, an ensemble of select instrumentalists, performs one major concert each semester. Its musicians frequently perform in opera, choral, and other concerts on campus.

This performance is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public.

Pangle Hall is located on the corner of Church Street and Central Avenue.
