For the City Times
The Central Wisconsin Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. Patrick Miles, presents its third concert of the season program during two different shows in February.
The orchestra will perform Saturday, Feb. 20. at 7:30 PM and Sunday, Feb. 21 at 4 PM.
Continuing the celebration of the CWSO’s new grand piano, Dr. Molly Roseman, professor of piano at UW-Stevens Point will perform Maurice Ravel’s “Concerto for Piano in G Major,” in her second solo appearance with the CWSO.
Roseman’s performance is made possible through funding from Security Health Plan. Concert sponsorship is generously provided by the Sentry Insurance Foundation and a grant from the Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin.
Also on the program is Ludwig Van Beethoven’s “Leonore Overture No. 3,” composed as the orchestral opener for his only opera. The second half of the program includes “Symphony No. 5 in D Major ‘Reformation,’” which was written in commemoration of the 300th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, and its first performance in 1832 was given ‘in aid of the orchestra’s benevolent fund.’
The CWSO Board of Directors is proud to sponsor the award-winning UW-Marathon County Vocal Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Dr. Timothy Buchholz at intermission during both concerts. This 16-member student group performs a wide variety of jazz and pop music, and is open by audition to all students at the campus.
All performances will be held at the Theater @1800 in the Sentry Insurance Complex, 1800 Northpoint Drive, Stevens Point. Tickets, available through the UWSP Box Office are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and $10 for any student with an I.D. through college plus $2 handling charge on each ticket.
