Summer Symphony Orchestra Concert
Location: Duerksen Fine Arts Center, Miller Concert Hall

Dvorak's Eighth Symphony and an array of musical theater selections highlight the WSU Summer Orchestra concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 19, in Miller Concert Hall. The "G Major Symphony" by Czech composer Antonin Dvorak, composed in 1889, is a tuneful, vibrant work whose melodies and amiable spirit seem derived from the Bohemian countryside itself. Faculty artists Emily Sternfeld-Dunn, soprano, and Randolph Lacy, tenor, will perform solos and duets representing three giants of American musical theater: George Gershwin, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim. The program will also include Beethoven's dramatic Egmont Overture.

Tickets for this event are $7 with discounts available, and they go on sale June 28. For more information and tickets, please call the WSU Fine Arts Box Office at 316-978-3233.

When the moon is available in the evening sky during the months of May, June, July and August, the Lake Afton Public Observatory features "Moons, Rings and Other Things." This is a great opportunity to come out to the Observatory and use the 16-inch diameter telescope to get a close look at our nearest celestial neighbor, the moon, with its mountains and craters. Also take a closer look at Saturn with its beautiful ring system and many moons and a distant star with planets of its own.

"Moons, Rings and Other Things" will be presented on Friday and Saturday evenings.
July 19-20
August 16-17

Admission:
$5 for adults
$3 for children ages 6-12
