Published: Nov 26, 2013
On Tuesday, Dec. 3, The University of Tampa Orchestra — and a special guest —will perform a holiday-themed concert. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in Falk Theatre, with a pre-concert discussion at 6:45 p.m.

The program includes Leroy Anderson's Christmas Festival and Sleigh Ride, an arrangement of Greensleeves and Carol of the Drums, and Steven Amundson's Angel’s Dance. The UT Orchestra is conducted by Kira Omelchenko, director of orchestral and string studies.

The concert will also feature the Plant High School Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Steven Bossert. The high school select ensemble will perform The Moon of Winter and an arrangement of Lauridsen’s O Magnum Mysterium.

The two orchestras will be combined for the final “Hallelujah” from Händel’s Messiah.

The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Omelchenko at komelchenko@ut.edu or (813) 257-3762.
