The orchestra’s first concert of the new term opens with Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture, featuring the student hymn Gaudeamus Igur.

The musicians will be joined by soloist Leo Appel for Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto.

The concert in the Weston Auditorium, on the university’s de Havilland Campus, concludes with Brahms’ brilliant Second Symphony.
