Student symphony performs

Posted: Thursday, August 22, 2002

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
