The first University Symphony Orchestra concert of the 2013 – 2014 school year on Oct. 9 will feature the world premiere of “Jubilee Symphony,” by Barbara Harbach, professor of music. The work was commissioned by the University of Missouri-St. Louis for its 50th Anniversary.
The orchestra, directed by Robert Howard, will also perform other works including Beethoven’s Second Symphony, a prophetic work that foretells Beethoven’s later symphonic output – particularly his ninth symphony. The concert is free and open to the public.
