(THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Feb. 11, 2013) California Lutheran University will present a free symphony concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 3, in Samuelson Chapel.
In “The Evolution of a Concert,” the University Symphony will display the progress it has made in the development of the season-long project pieces “Petite Suite” by Claude Debussy, “Elegy in Memoriam” by David Colin Freeman and Symphony No. 5 “Reformation” by Felix Mendelssohn. As movements are added, the students continue to practice, rehearse and add new levels of sophistication.
The program will include the first movement of the Tuba Concerto by contemporary composer Edward Gregson featuring CLU band director Michael Hart as the soloist. Hart directs CLU’s Wind Ensemble, Chamber Wind Ensemble and Pep Band, and teaches theory and low brass. As a tubist, the Thousand Oaks resident has performed with the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony and The University of Iowa Symphony Band. He competed at the 2008 International Tuba Euphonium Conference Quartet Competition in Cincinnati and appeared as a tubist and conductor at the 2010 International Tuba Euphonium Conference.
Music professor Daniel Geeting will conduct.
The chapel is located south of Olsen Road near Campus Drive on the Thousand Oaks campus.
Donations will be accepted. For more information, call the Music Department at 805-493-3306 or visit http://www.callutheran.edu.
