NMU, MAPS Orchestras Perform

The Northern Michigan University Orchestra, under the direction of Barbara Rhyneer, is holding a concert at the Reynolds Recital Hall. They are performing with “Symphony Strings” from Marquette High School in a concert titled, “You Will be Found.” The 7:30 p.m. performance on Tuesday, Oct. 24, is free and open to the public.

The title of the concert shares its name with the featured piece of the night, an orchestral arrangement of “You Will be Found” from the musical theater production Dear Evan Hansen, performed by NMU Symphony Orchestra. The song features a theater vocalist performing the male solo, as well as a small vocal ensemble.

Symphony Strings is performing two pieces at the beginning of the concert with the NMU String Orchestra, Ernest Bloch's “Concerto Grosso for String Orchestra and Piano obbligato,” and Dmitri Shostakovich's “Sinfonia for String Orchestra from String Quartet No. 8 Op. 110.”

NMU String Orchestra will finish with “A Boy and a Girl” by Eric Whitacre before NMU Symphony takes the stage, playing songs such as Simple Gifts, arranged by Marsha Chusmir Shapiro; Harry Gregson-Williams's “Prince Caspian,” and other songs. The featured piece of the night, “You Will be Found,” is the closing act.
