Orchestra Follows 'Traveling' Composers

Going along with Albion College's Global Diversity Year, the Albion College Symphony Orchestra presents a "travel"-themed concert Sunday, February 24, at 4 p.m. in the College's Goodrich Chapel.

The concert features four of the classical canon's most popular works, all named for locations visited or imagined by the composers. "We had a lot of fun choosing the program," said associate conductor Drew Dunham. "We came up with a long list of great music that was inspired by travel and cultures foreign to the composers."

The program includes Tchaikovsky's "Capriccio Italien," Rimsky-Korsakov's "Capriccio Espagnol," Griffes' "The Pleasure Dome of Kubla Khan" and Granger favorite "Irish Tune from County Derry."

This concert is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Albion College Music Department, 517/629-0481, .
