"It should be a great concert," said Alex Blanton, one of the show's organizers. "We have some of the best players in town."
The concert will feature MU students, faculty and community members, all of who have played with the orchestra in the past. Blanton said the concert will have pieces ranging from classical Beethoven to 20th century compositions like Igor Stravinsky's 1923 "Octet for Wind Instruments."
"The Stravinsky octet is a very fun piece, but very difficult," Blanton said. "It's a very exciting piece of music."
Tickets are $15 for adults. Admission is free for children and students with IDs.
Fifty percent of ticket sales will go to the Con Brio fund, which Blanton said was created by the Missouri Theatre Center for the Arts specifically so the orchestra can play during the summer.
Blanton said the orchestra currently has two shows scheduled for the summer. One is a modern pop concert June 27 in Clinton, and the second is an American tribute, "Patriotic Pops," scheduled for 7:30 p.m., July 3, at the Missouri Theatre Center for the Arts.
