Orchestra of the Pines to perform music of Webern

SFA’s Orchestra of the Pines will perform a program featuring great string repertoire at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 24, in Cole Concert Hall.

The program features a not-so-well-known work – a love song titled “Langsamer Satz” by Anton Webern, a 20th century composer known for his work in the 12-tone compositional technique.

“The 12-tone composition technique was designed to prove that all notes are created equal and thus each given the greatest harmonic and melodic sounds,” said Dr. Gene H. Moon, director of orchestras. 

Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, and $3 for students and youth. For tickets or more information, call the SFA Fine Arts Box Office at (936) 468-6407, or visit finearts.sfasu.edu.
