Symphony Orchestra Fall Concert

The Andrews University Symphony Orchestra presents its fall concert on Saturday, Nov. 23, at 8 p.m. in the Howard Performing Arts Center. This event will be a benefit concert to support those affected by Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda in the Philippines.

Both the orchestra and the Howard Performing Arts Center are contributing 100 percent of the concert’s proceeds toward Philippines relief through ADRA (Adventist Development & Relief Agency) International. ADRA’s emergency management initiatives provide aid to disaster survivors, such as the victims of the Nov. 8 storm in the Philippines.

Andrews Filipino International Association (AFIA) will also be selling apparel at the concert and will give 100 percent of their proceeds to ADRA for Philippines relief as part of the AFIA fundraising campaign for the Philippines: Many Hands, One Hope.

Directed by Claudio Gonzalez, music director, and Jose Meneses, assistant conductor, the ensemble will perform Rossini’s Overture La Gazza Iadra, Paganini’s Concerto for Violin & Orchestra and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 2, “Little Russian,” Op. 17.

The orchestra also welcomes guest soloist Haoli Lin, winner of the Andrews University International String Competition 2013.

Tickets are available online at howard.andrews.edu or by calling 888-467-6442. General admission is $5; students and seniors are $3; children 12 and under are free.
