Auburn University/Community Orchestra to Perform April 26

The Auburn University/Community Orchestra presents a concert on Sunday, April 26 at 4:00 pm at the Jule-Collins Smith Museum. For the final concert of the academic year, the orchestra will present Vivaldi’s Concerto for 2 Trumpets (with soloists Mark DeGoti and Sam Strickland), Stamitz’s Concerto for Flute (with soloist Karen Garrison), and Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 3. The Jule Collins-Smith Museum offers an acoustical environment that provides an exceptional listening experience for patrons.

Founded in 1999, the mission of the Auburn University/Community Orchestra is to present orchestral concerts to the citizens of Auburn, Opelika, and East Alabama. The orchestra members also wish to promote awareness of orchestral music outside of the Auburn/Opelika area by visiting other communities in the region, either as a group or individually. The group is comprised of pre-college and college students, active and retired faculty, music teachers, and professional musicians. The conductor of the orchestra is Dr. Howard Goldstein, associate professor of Music at Auburn University. Dr. Goldstein holds degrees from the University of California, Los Angeles, and the Peabody conservatory of Music in Baltimore, Maryland. He has led the University/Community Orchestra and taught music history, violin, and conducting.
