Whitworth Orchestra to Perform April 21 Concert, "Teutonic Treasures"

The Whitworth Orchestra will perform a spring concert, "Teutonic Treasures," on Friday, April 21, at 7:30 p.m., in Cowles Auditorium at Whitworth College. Admission is free. For more information, please call (509) 777-3280.

The concert will feature the following works, by two renowned Germanic symphonic composers: Tragic Overture by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) and Symphony No. 3 "Scottish" by Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847).

The Whitworth Orchestra performs the great symphonic and string literature of the past and present. Under the new leadership of Philip Baldwin, D.M.A., the ensemble has grown from a string orchestra to a full orchestra and has recently performed works by Beethoven, Prokofiev, Britten and Sibelius. Whitworth's orchestra program is enhanced through a partnership with the Spokane Symphony. The partnership brings some of the area's finest musicians to campus for master classes, sectional coaching, and other events.

Located in Spokane, Wash., Whitworth is a private liberal arts college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA). The college enrolls 2,400 students in more than 50 undergraduate and graduate programs.
