Auburn, Ala. - The Auburn Community Orchestra invites the community to join them in celebrating fall with a FREE concert at Kiesel Park on Sunday, Sept. 22 at 4 p.m. Bring a blanket, chairs, a picnic, and the family dog and enjoy an afternoon of music under the shade trees at one of Auburn's favorite parks.
Brace yourself for an "arctic blast" of music featuring pieces from the frozen North, including Canada, North England, and Scandinavia. Enjoy performances of Britten's "Canadian Carnival," Delius' "Over the Hills and Far Away," Sibelius' "Karelia Suite," and excerpts from Grieg's "Peer Gynt." In the event of rain, the concert will be held in the band room of the AU Music Building, Goodwin Hall.
Founded in 1998, the Auburn Community Orchestra is dedicated to the mission of presenting orchestral concerts to the citizens of Auburn, Opelika, and East Alabama. The group promotes awareness of orchestral music outside of the Auburn/Opelika area by performing in other communities throughout the region. Created by members of the former Auburn University Orchestra, the group has been a community partner with the City of Auburn and the Auburn Arts Association for 15 years.
