The OBU Division of Music will present the 49th annual Concerto-Aria concert in Raley Chapel’s Potter Auditorium on the OBU campus in Shawnee. Several OBU Fine Arts college students will perform as soloists, accompanied by a full orchestra. The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. and the public is invited to attend this free event.
The Concerto-Aria Orchestra is composed of nearly 40 members, including students, faculty, staff, alumni and members of the public.
The first Concerto-Aria concert was organized in 1974 as a way for outstanding musical performers to have the opportunity to appear with a live orchestra and perform repertoire from the great catalogues of piano concertos and opera arias. Some years later, instrumental concertos and other works were added to the performances, including original compositions by student composers.
