"We are very excited about the strength and increased size of this year's Orchestra," says Orcenith Smith, conductor of the ensemble. "In only a few short weeks, we have put together a great program of standard works to get them focused on their potential. This is the earliest that a DePauw Orchestra has ever played a concert."

The performance will feature the "Academic Festival Overture" by Johannes Brahms and "The Walk to Paradise Garden" from A Village Romeo and Juliet by English impressionist composer,DePauw Orchestra Fall 2007.jpg Frederik Delius. Ending the one-hour program will be Tchaikowsky's Symphony No. 5.

"This is a wonderful concert for everyone -- the students participating, the University community and the general public -- all of whom will find these pieces very straightforward and filled with inspiration," declares Smith.
