The Goshen College Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Dr. José Rocha, will present its spring concert in Sauder Concert Hall on Sunday afternoon, April 10. The concert will begin at 4:00 p.m.

Professor Rocha will lead this student ensemble in performances of Johannes Brahms’ Tragic Overture, selections from Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5, and two works by 20th century Mexican composer Arturo Marquéz.

The Goshen College Symphony Orchestra is a group that varies in size and repertoire from that of chamber orchestra to full philharmonic dimensions. Formed in the 1950s, it has actively performed standard symphonic repertoire ever since. The group presents concerts of major orchestral works each semester. In addition, it accompanies the choirs, operas and student winners of the Concerto-Aria Competition.
