JUNEAU - The Juneau Student Symphony will perform two free concerts, Friday, Aug. 23, at noon at the State Office Building and at 6:30 p.m. at Marine Park.
Student symphony director Rick Trostel said the half-hour concert will include a Strauss waltz, "The Emperor Waltz," the Dixieland tune "Bill Bailey," Leroy Anderson's "A Bugler's Holiday" and Robert Hirsch's "Concerto Gross."
"It's a fairly classically constructed concerto for three kazoos and orchestra," Trostel said.
The student symphony is a community group for all ages and has about 35 musicians - about a half-dozen adult players and about 30 middle- and high school-age musicians.
Anyone interested is welcome to call Trostel at 586-1915. Participation includes tickets to the Juneau Symphony performances, and the Juneau Symphony maintains a Web page for the student group linked to juneau.com.
