on October 13, 2012 by Janet Edwards

The Maryville Symphony and the Music at Maryville program are hosting two upcoming events on campus, which provide access to wonderful music and talented performers.

On Sunday, Oct. 28,  the Maryville Symphony will perform Mozart Sinfonia Concertante in E Flat, K. 297B and Saint-Saens Introduction and Rondo capriccioso, Op. 28, and Beethoven Symphony No. 7, Op. 28. The concert is free, but donations are welcome.

The Maryville Symphony ( is a community orchestra hosted by Maryville University and run by members of the Laclede String Quartet. Wendy Lea, a longtime member of the quartet, is the orchestra’s conductor. Those who have heard the orchestra encourage others to attend, saying musicians play with  great dedication and enthusiasm, and call it a joy to hear them.

At 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4,  pianist Peter Henderson, DM, will play a concert of Claude Debussy music in Maryville Auditorium. Henderson says, ” This year marks the 150th anniversary of the great French composer Claude Debussy’s birth, and I wanted to celebrate it by performing a recital that shows chronologically how he developed as a musical innovator, both harmonically and texturally, while also providing listeners with a chance to enjoy Debussy’s “greatest hits,” like Clair de lune, The Sunken Cathedral, Golliwogg’s Cakewalk, and his impressionist masterpiece Reflections in the Water.” This Music at Maryville concert is $10 adults, $5 for seniors and free for students.
