The Lee University Symphony Orchestra will present its spring concert on Monday at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall.
The program, conducted by Artist-In-Residence Robert Bernhardt, will feature the six winners of Lee’s Student Concerto Competition: Kyle Dykes on trombone, Timothy Ferguson on alto saxophone, soprano Gabrielle Flannery, Soyoung Lim on piano, Chiaoyu Lin on piano, and Lawrence Wong on piano.
The remainder of the program will include works by Bourgeois, Poulenc, Puccini, and Rachmaninoff, among others.
Mr. Bernhardt joined Lee's School of Music in the fall of 2011. Mr. Bernhardt 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. He was formerly the music director and conductor for 19 seasons with the CSO, and he is the first to hold the title emeritus. He is also a frequent guest conductor for the Boston Pops and the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra.
The 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.
The concert is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public.
