Orchestra to perform 3 pieces tonight

Samuel Teas, Co-Editor-In-Chief

The Orchestra will hold a concert tonight in the PAC at 7 p.m.

The pieces preformed will be Mars, the Bringer of War, from The Planets suite by Gustav Holst, Procession of the Nobles by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, and Variation IX: Nimrod from the Enigma Variations by Edward Elgar. Head Orchestra Director Brett Nelsen, Head Band Director Ray Jones and Assistant Orchestra Director Oscar Vera will conduct each piece respectively.

“I hope we execute it well,” trombonist Sid Wahi said. “Mars is my favorite because we have really fun and loud parts and it sounds really cool overall.”
