8 p.m. Harman Hall, Performing Arts Center
The centerpiece of the concert is a performance of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5, a monumental work that is as emotionally powerful as it is musically unified by the idea of human fate, said David Arrivée, the ensemble's director.
The first half of the program will also include Mikhail Glinka's overture to "Russlan and Ludmilla" and Charles Griffes' "Poem for Flute and Orchestra," featuring Suzanne Duffy, flutist and music faculty member.
Duffy is principal flute for Symphony of the Vines and second flute/piccolo for Opera Santa Barbara. She has performed with Opera San Luis Obispo, the Palm Beach Opera, Santa Barbara Symphony, Florida Philharmonic, and the New World and Indianapolis Symphonies.
