University Symphony Orchestra Concert

Description: To kick off their 2016-2017 performance season, the orchestra will perform two celebrated masterpieces alongside two far-reaching contemporary compositions. Rossini’s instantly recognizable William Tell Overture and Strauss’s evocative symphonic poem Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks set the stage for two plugged-in pieces. Composer and techno DJ Mason Bates’s Mothership brings the essence of the dance hall to the orchestra with visiting soloists on electric instruments.
Interim TTU Professor of Composition D.J. Sparr will also solo in his own Concerto for Electric Guitar and Orchestra.
