The School of Music at Southern Adventist University invites the community to enjoy a concert by its Symphony Orchestra this Sunday at 7:30 p.m. in Collegedale Church of Seventh-day Adventists, 4829 College Drive East in Collegedale.

Directed by Laurie Redmer Cadwallader, the evening program includes Overture to Hansel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck and Symphony No. 3 in Eb major, ob. 97 Rhenish by Rombert Schumann. Kristen Holritz, adjunct music professor at Southern, will play the flute part for Gordon Jacob’s Concerto No.
1 for Flute and Strings.

Noted for her “beautiful tone and vibrato,” Ms. Holritz makes her home on stage as a remarkably versatile flutist. In 2013, she was appointed principal flute with the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera and performs regularly with the Nashville Opera, Nashville Symphony, Alabama Symphony and Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra in South Carolina. Equally invested as a teacher, she serves as adjunct flute professor at Lee University and temporarily joined the faculty at Vanderbilt University as adjunct instructor of flute for fall 2022. Ms. Holritz holds a bachelor of music in flute performance from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and a master of music in flute performance from The Juilliard School in New York.

This event is free and open to the public and also will be livestreamed at southern.edu/streaming.
